    Does anyone know how to change the specific sound for the Mail application? I have the default notification set to a sound I want for all my texts, emails, and gmails. However, when I get a corporate email on my Thunderbolt it is not the default notificiation sound. I know apps can be set independently of the default sound but there is nowhere in the Mail settings to achieve this. It was easy on the Droid, but for some reason I cannot find it on the Thunderbolt. Driving me crazy as I want to set a specific sound for corporate vs personal emails. Anyone found a way to fix this?

    Kinda in the same boat myself. It doesn't appear to have a seperate selection for different email account notifications. I also can't get the specific tone I choose to actually work. It keeps going back to almost like a default tone. Alpha is the name of it. I change it and save it and it still keeps using that tone. It's annoying. Can anyone help?

    On my Incredible, I'm pretty sure you could have different sounds in the stock Mail app, but I can't remember how to do it.

    I'm using Gmail and Gmail notifier. Works great!

    How about changing the sound of all the other ones to the tone your using in the actual individual apps and than changing the default tone to the one you want for your corporate. Long way around, but still a solution.

    If you have not found the answer yet, I found it on another thread-

    Taken from "Diablo"--Press the Personalize button from the home screen (paint brush and canvas), go down to Personalize sound->Notification sound, then change which one you looking for.

    Thanks Diablo!!!

    Open Gmail > Menu > More > Settings > Tap the account you want > Scroll to bottom and select 'Labels to notify' > Tap what you want to be notified for (in my case is 'Inbox' only) > Tap 'Ringtone' > Voila!
