Default Changing email notification sound?

This is a little different from my original DINC. I cannot seem to figure out with the new menu layout how to change the email chime. I've been able to change the text chime and ringtone but cannot find the blasted email sounds!

Any help?

Yea. I know that in the gmail app and in exchange you can change the notification sound and it is separate from the phone notification settings.

Ok. So I stand corrected. The HTC mail app does not seem to allow you to change the notification sound. I know the Dinc1 allowed this.

You could try the yahoo mail app...?

Oh.... And... 100 posts. woot woot!!

Even the custom sound profiles (which SEEMS to be the one way you can change it) are IN-customizable! I can open a new one but cannot seem to make any changes to the custom sound profiles. I think they forgot to complete that feature!

I just checked my HTC mail app on the original incredible and I don't see an option to change the ringtone. Only to toggle notification sound on or off.

On the original DINC, to set the mail notification sound, you use the main menu>settings and select a notification sound for email. To change the sound for text, you go into text and then open the menu and choose a separate one.

Ahh, that's it!

By default, the text is set to default which gives simply matches whatever sound you've chosen for incoming messages in the main menu. So set email notification first then go into text and change it from default to something different and you will separate the sounds and be able to distinguish the type of incoming message by the sound.

GO PREDATORS!

Nope. The above didn't work. I am stumped as to how to change the incoming email sound!

Also, when you make a custom sound set, how the heck do you make any changes??

Look all day and found it.
select the Personalize icon then go to Notification Sound and select.
Then you can select the sounds for the different items.
