    I currently have my work Exchange account synced to deliver messages as they arrive, and there are 2 specific address that I would like to have a different notification sound for.

    Reason being, if I get a helpdesk ticket or a notification from our network monitoring software, I would like a different tone to play so I'll know it's not just a random email. That different sound tells me "YO! Get off your butt and get that NOW..it's a ticket!!"


    Is there any way to do this with the stock email app, or another email app that will allow this?

    Ntelos HTC Hero btw...

    Well..I figured out a quick fix. I set a rule on the server where if I get an email from a certain address, I forward it to my phone as a text. Set a different tone for texts and it works.
