Post Email notification

Can anybody help. Is it possible to get a notification when an email comes in that is not the default notification tone or do you I need to use another email program. If so what do you recommend?
Thanks for any help

Which email app are you using? It's possible in the gmail one for sure, just look in the settings. I'd imagine every email app will have a setting for this though, have a look.

I am using the HTC email program.
I would like primarily a tone notification but would prefer both.
I am not against using another app but I do not want to forward all my mail to a gmail account so I can use just their app.
Thanks for any help.

I am currently using the gmail app for my gmail account and yes that does give the option. The HTC email app seems to just turn on notifications but you cannot pick a tone. I have several other email account which I need to keep seperate.
Thanks

Thanks very much for replying. I have added various new tones notifications etc but I cannot assigned one to the HTC email program. It only seems to give me the option to enable a notification but not to choose which one.
Thanks

Put the sound you want to use (mp3) in your notification folder, go to messages or email, open "Menu" select settings/select sound, anything you place into the notifications folder will be shown as a selection. If you don't see it you haven't done it right, or your connected to your PC.

Yours must be different to mine as I have no where to change the sounds, all I can do is enable sounds, vibrate etc. Are we both talking about the HTC default email program? If not what are you using?

For some reason (I may be wrong) I think you can only use one notification tone for everything.

You can use seperate notification tones for everything: email, sms, facebook, twitter and so on. Just look for the option in the respective app.

So it's odd there isn't one in the HTC mail app. I'd have a look but I dont have that app on mine any more.

What email app do you use apart from gmail?

Just possible they have addressed this with the revised OS/ROM coming with Android 2.1 - might be worth waiting to see.

The sound you set for notifications in home>menu>settings>sound and display>notification sound is the default sound for notifications and will be used for emails into the HTC mail app.

All other notification sounds can be changed from this in their respective programs but for some reason not the mail app, so it's there that you need to set it.
