    Yes, I know there are a lot of similar posts on this topic, but, can someone point me to an application which would allow me to do the following:

    Phone - Ringer On
    E-mail - Notification Off
    SMS - Notification On

    I created a "profile" for this on my BB called "SMS AND PHONE". I tried an application called "Timeriffic", but that application combines SMS and E-mail into one "Notification" heading.

    I need something that will separate the way SMS and E-mail is handled. The reason being is that when one of our servers is down, I automatically receive a SMS stating so, so I need to be able to have SMS on 24/7, but I don't want to hear my e-mails coming in while I am asleep. Also, I'm ok with "manually" setting the profile on/off.


    Thanks for any help you can provide. :D

    There are options out there...timeriffic (or similar), locale, and search on profiles in the marketplace, I think you'll find more options there.

    Thanks Jim. I saw that mentioned in another post as well. Does quick profiles separate SMS and Email? I'll try it out.

    Now I remember why I did not download quick profiles. From the screenshots of this application, it seems to have the "notifications" heading, which means it doesn't separate SMS and Email. If someone is using this application, please confirm.

    it won't work the way you want.
    you get ringer,media,notification,alarm and voice call volume.

    Yea. Maybe there's not an application out there yet that does what I want. I hope someone can prove me wrong! :p

    Droid should have come with this functionality built-in. Oh well, still love the phone.

    As an alternative to setting the email notification volume to zero and leaving the SMS notification volume set to a higher value, maybe you can find an app that will set the notification sound to a "silent" ringer. Then it wouldn't matter what the volume was set to.

    You can set ringtones and volumes separately for each app.

    For instance, I go to Gmail and set a ringtone 100% volume whereas I can have a different ringtone and different volume for Messages. Also, both of these apps allow me to disable notifications for their respective apps altogether.

    Unfortunately I have not used the Email app so I don't know if that has its own setting like Gmail does, but everything I've seen so far has its own independent setting, such as Facebook, Twidroid, Gmail, Messages, etc.
