    Here goes going to burn another stupid question point. I want to have different notifications for email, gmail , and text.

    So far I cannot find a setting specifically for mail. It will only play the default notification. Is there a setting to change it just for email ? Or does it always use the global setting.


    I can set it for txt and gmail so i can accomplish my goal that way. I just wondered if there is a setting i am missing. Read the whole manual.

    As far as I know there is just a general setting for "Notifications", nothing specific for email. You may be able to change it with 3rd party software, but I disable alerts for email so I have never really thought of it as a problem

    I use tone picker. It is in the market. Small app and it will do what you want.

    So one more question. I have tone picker but the only menu I seem to able to access is the one with the volume sliders. What am I missing ?

    Well, in gmail you can go into settings, select ringtone and select whichever sound you wish. You can do the same in the messages app - menu, settings, select sound. The mail app doesn't seem to have a setting, but uses the default sound, but obviously if you make the messaging and gmail apps use something different from default, you'll be all set. You really don't need a third party app for that.

    I actually do not use notifications for mail, but I have gmail set to the same sound that mail.app uses on my Mac (it just makes it easy for me to distinguish when new mail arrives, no matter which system I am on), and I have messaging set to something other than my default (it turns out to be the same as I used on my old WM phone.)
