Unable to change incoming mail notification sound

    When I first set up my phone, I set the notification sound for incoming E-mails to "Postman" (one of the pre-loaded notification tones) using the 'settings' menu within the E-mail app. Since then I've tried to set it to "silence", to other ringtones, and to switch incoming E-mail notifications off entirely, but my phone stubbornly continues to play the "Postman" notification sound whenever E-mail comes in. No other events including the default notification (in the 'settings' menu accessed from the desktop) use the "Postman" ringtone.

    The E-mail app somehow seems to ignore the change in notification settings. I'm s tumped as to why.

    Could anyone offer suggestions on where to look and/or what to do in order to fathom out what's going on here? All ideas would be appreciated!
