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
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.
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 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.
If you go to the 1st sticky post on this forum, it will tell you how to add more notifications, alarms & ringtones
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.
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.

Thanks for coming back to me so quickly but its for my email not text messages. I have changed the one for text messages already.
