I cannot find a setting to disable this!
I get emails in the middle of the night and the phone keeps notifying me every 5 minutes or so until i clear it.
I am using the "Mail" app that came with the phone and it is a regular email account, nothing special.
I too would like to know how to stop and or change the time of the "reminder". I know there's a setting in mail menu for "download frequency" which is automatically set to 15minutes. But I think that's just how often it checks for the mail, and not what's controlling the "reminder". Could be worth a shot to set it to "once a day" and see if it stops the reminder.
well heres an idea turn it off.....or put it on silent.....problem solved
Here's another idea- read the whole thread jackass.

I am using the standard "Mail" program that came on the phone. I do not use my GMail account for my normal email, so I utilize the "other" mail program. This issue seems to be unique to my phone because I can't find a setting, or anyone else that is recieving reminder alerts.
I have the same problem. It began when I enabled reminders in the Handcent app. Since then the standard Mail app has been giving reminders as well. The problem is disabling the reminders in Handcent does NOT disable them globally.
It's as if there is a reminder feature built in to the OS but there is no interface to access it. Now that it's enabled I can't find a way to disable it for Mail. It affects all mail accounts... deleting and adding a single mail account back does not fix the issue.
I have found this to be the same, too. I realize this thread was started a few months ago, however only this past week has the started to happen with me (Incredible + Froyo).
Using the stock email app and connecting through IMAP, I have it sync every 10 minutes. If I receive a message at 10:00am, then, it checks it at 10:10am, I get a notification. Then, if I choose NOT to look at it, I get another notification at 10:20am.
This used to mean that I now had at least 2 emails that have been delivered to me. Often times, it now only shows the 1st email that was sent at 10:00am. If I leave this message there, I will continue to get a notification every 10 minutes. This is increasingly annoying, as if I am in the middle of a conversation, the phone will continue to notify me over and over and over again, even when there is just ONE email in there.
There HAS to be a setting in there about repeating alerts. I do not have any app installed that would have previously created this entry and then left it behind when it was removed. Has anyone come up with a fix for this?
OR...is there an app out there that will do reminders on the stock email app (like it does for Handcent) and I can tell THAT app to just check once? I'm trying for some kind of workaround...
I am having this problem too. I got a Tmobile MyTouch 4G (Android 2.2.1) 2 weeks ago; It's my first Android pohone.
I am using the stock Mail program. I have 2 accounts setup for IMAP within it and I do not use Gmail on the phone. When I get an email that I don't read, the phone will continue to alert me every 10 minutes. I cannot find any setting to adjust this and it's very annoying. The woman in the Tmobile store looked at me liked I have two heads when I asked her to help me fix this.
Setting the notification to none or silent is not a solution. I want the phone to notify me audibly ONCE when I get an email.
My new DINC2 is making me crazy with this same problem. Like others here, I really DO want to be notified of new email but only want to be notified ONCE. I'm really getting sick and tired of being reminded over and over and over for the same email. I suppose there are folks who would actually want this "feature" but not being able to turn it off boggles the mind. My only choices seem to be either no alert at all or else endless nagging alerts until I read the email. Asinine is far too polite a word for this.
