It's been said a few times, but I'll just rinse/repeat:

Open Gmail Account on phone>Menu soft key>More>Settings>Select Account>Scroll to bottom of Settings for the account>Click Labels to Notify>Make sure both Inbox and Priority Inbox have "Silent" selected.

I'm confused. Do you have a photon or an evo 3d?
-Edit-

This is the most important part of my instructions:

Select Account (if you have multiple gmail accounts)>Scroll to bottom of Settings for the specific account>Click Labels to Notify>Another menu window will come up that will allow you to select a notification for both inbox and priority inbox. Make sure both Inbox and Priority Inbox have "Silent" selected.

Default Labels to Notify grayed out?

I cannot select the "Labels to notify" option - it is grayed out. I do have gmail syncing all labels, so I'm not sure why I can't select that.

Using Motorola Droid2, running Android 2.3.4

Welcome to the forums!

Quick question: It says you're using a Droid 2. Is that the case? If so, I'll ask one of our mods to move your thread to those forums, so that you can get an accurate answer.

If it's the same as the Photon, the only reason that wouldn't be available is if the box for Email Notifications (for the status bar) is not checked. That should be right above "Labels to notify."

I have the same phone, evo 3d, and I had the same issue until I figured this out:
Menu button>Label Settings>Uncheck Email notifications

That'd be great if this were the evo 3d forum.

If instructions have to be rinsed/repeated more often than not, it points to a UI design issue - the steps are just not intuitive enough.

Default Changing the Default System Notification

New to DROIDS, on Verizon/Motorola RAZR MAXX HD ver 4.1.2

Last 2 weeks, same issues with annoying default email notification. Made me jump out of chair!!

From main Settings option at top, scroll down to DEVICE and choose SOUND.

Then to SYSTEM, Default Notification.

Default was "Fragmented"; you can change to SILENT or to any other standard tone.

Good luck.
