    hi all

    its my first post and im new to android phones (so go easy) :)

    when i get a email through google mail i get a notification sound

    i have a btinternet and hotmail account set up as well but when i recieve a email with either of them i get no sound to notify me ???

    i have ticked the email notifications and notification sound on for both email accounts , theres no choice for the sound just turn on or off but still no sound when i receive email from either ????

    any ideas

    thanks in advance

    well first i am gonna say check in the individual account settings first to make sure that you have notifications turned on. you can set each account individually to have different ringtones. this must be done from within the actual account that you want to modify. what version and phone are you running? i have a moto droid and have a gmail and isu account and have them both make different sounds.

    Dude, i got the same question, and wonder how to solve it. by the way, how to set the hotmail accout by the exchange activesycn, and how can i read the emails from gmail using the HTC Sense's inbox? cause there only get two choices, Exchange ActiveSycn and POP3/IMAP.

    Hmmm well I would have to say that how I explained it is how I did it on my phone. Moto droid. Gmail is an imap system by the way. also pull the battery and then check
    Sometimes that helps.

    Oh also hotmail is pop3 and I think you have tito pay extra with hotmail to use that service.

    Hey Somekid13 - it worked for me. Thanks!
    I had been trying to change it in the general settings. I also have a HTC Desire.

    As for the email that someone else was talking about, I just downloaded the App. It was easier!
