    i have a droid x with gingerbread installed.
    from the inbox screen i do the following:
    press menu -> more -> settings
    press my account
    in the "Notification settings" section i set "Email notifications" off

    when i turn sync on, i still get a beep and menu notification. how do i prevent this from happening? i want to get email but i don't want to know about it. my corp email works this way.

    Open Gmail and set the settings.

    Menu > More > Settings > Tap the account you want > Change "Email notifications" to "off."

    Each app has individual notification settings.

    Wow. I'm an idiot. I completely read your first post wrong.

    Sorry.

    That's odd, you don't have another app that might be interfering, do you? "Gmail notifier" or a similar app?

    When you go back into the settings after turning it off, is it staying off or is it turning back on again?
