Default Yahoo! Mail notification sounds

Just got a new Galaxy Relay last night. When I go into Yahoo! Mail to try to change the notification sound, I find that there are only three options:

"Refresh"
"Folders"
"Accounts"

I am trying to change the notification sound, but I see no "Options" or "Settings" -- only the three choices noted above. I suspect I may be missing something obvious, but is changing the device's default notification sound the ONLY way to handle the Y! Mail notification sound? I can make changes to the notification sounds (and vibrations) for my e-mail accounts in Google (Gmail), Outlook, and Hotmail ... but not Yahoo?

Thanks, all!

1. Open the Yahoo email window
2. Press settings button on front lower left of device.
3. Select "settings"
4. Select Yahoo
5. Scroll down near the bottom of the screen is a choice, "Select ringtone"
Tap that

Problem is that "3. Settings" is not an option. I get only three options when I hit the phone's settings button from within Yahoo! mail:

"Refresh"
"Folders"
"Accounts"

I have the same problem. The menu only gives those 3 options. I cant find any way to turn off the notification sound. If i cant find a solution I may have to uninstall the app.

In yahoo mail click the 3 purple lines next to Inbox in the upper left of the screen. scroll down in the slideout menu to settings under tools. go to account settings, then notification settings.

Enjoy!

It looks like it won't let you pick any custom sounds, only ones built into the phone or the included yahoo sounds.

This thread is the first helpful thing I've found. Open the app. If you open directly to Inbox, click the arrow to the left of Inbox. It will bring up a menu. Scroll WAY down and there IS a settings option! Click Account Settings, then Notification Settings.

THANK YOU!! What a STUPID place to put it.
