Default Stop new email notification sound

Hi,
I'm not sure if this is new activity or if it's been happening all along since I got my DX2 2 days ago but I can't find the setting to stop it.
When I get a new email in my Gmail Priority inbox the phone is putting a notification on my alert bar AND making a sound. The icon is great. The sound, not so much. How do I stop it?

Also, is there a way to change the color the LED blinks when I have new email the same way I can for new txts? What about for and other notifications? Is there an app that does that or is it an app by app thing?

Thanks!
Charlie

Default Found an answer

After searching the forums again for this, I found an answer on a very old thread started in 2009. The settings for the gmail app have changed and turning off the sound for just new email notifications is buried. But it's doable.

Click on your Gmail icon.
Press "Menu"
Select "More"
Select "Settings"
Select the email address you'd like to change (eg yourname@gmail.com)
Select "Lables to Notify"
Hit the dropdown arrow next to "Inbox"
Select "Ringtone" and then select "Silent".
