    I have my phone set to get my gmail and my work Exchange mail.

    When I get a text message, or a message in my gmail, the phone plays the notification sound, currently set to "Little."

    However, when I get an e-mail via Exchange ActiveSync, no sound plays.

    I have pulled the battery out and completely restarted the phone, but that didn't fix it.

    Any ideas?

    Open up the Exchange folder then click on Menu--More--Settings--Notifications Settings--Notification Sound

    But strangely, you can't customize the notification sound for exchange mail. It will play your default notification sound.

    In Gmail, Messages, etc., you can customize the notification sound. Why can't you do this in Exchange?

    Awesome, thanks.

    Yeah, that is strange, let's hope they fix that in a future release.

    Didn't try this, but
    Make your default to be the sound you want for Exchange
    Then change all other email and message clients to be different (custom)

    That's exactly what I did :) So you can accomplish exactly what you want as far as sounds go... just in kind of a roundabout way.
