For email notification changes you have to go to "Settings" > "Sound & display" > Notification Sound (Set your notification sound).

It will use the same sound for all your email accounts you have set up. (Gmail has it's own settings if you use that).

To use a custom sound, I added some .wav files in my SD card =
media/audio/notifications

HTH

Doing this method will work, but if you want it more customized since doing this will change your default tone for mail and text, you can open your mail app and hit menu>more>settings and change it in there. This will allow your mail tone to be different than your text tone. The only "problem" I've had with the Evo is the limited functions for setting different sounds to different processes, but it can all be worked around, or can always "find an app for that!"

The mehod I mentiond above works for me, I have 2 different .wav files and one is for text messages and the other for email.

dunno why you say it will play the same for both texts and emails

Default Re: ringtone for email

Wonder if anyone is still reading this thread, but I got my evo Yesturday. Its setup with corporate sync email for work. I do not use gmail with it. I'm trying to get my email notifications to be a different ring tone than SMS text message. Above it says do .."start mail app, menu>more>settings and change it in there." But for me, I can only turn sound on or off, not set a custom ringtone for email. Any sugestions? I'm using the default app that came with it for corporate sync. Does anyone know of a good app to set a custom ring tone for corporate sync email?

Default Re: ringtone for email

I looked at the FAQ, and searched the forums. Everyone says its been answered "a gazlillion" times before. In the one FAQ it says--

"Ok, first if you use the stock gmail app press menu, settings, select ringtone. If you use the standard mail app, press menu, settings, sound and display, notification ringtone, and select the ringtone you want. Next, open the messaging app and if you use the stock one, press menu, settings. Under ..... "

I'm using the standard mail app, using corporate sync, on Driod v2.2. And I'm telling you, that option is not there. I press Mail icon, I press menu -> More -> Settings. There is NO "Sound and Display". Only "Account Settings,General Settings, Send and Receive, Notification Settings, and delete Account" If I go into notification Settings, there is only "Email Notifications Y/N, Notification Sound Y/N, and Notification Vibrate Y/N" Thats it, nothing there or anywhere else to set a ringtone for email. Everything is Yes/No. I looked under all other headings, no luck.

What everone is saying, I'm not seeing... Is it different in v2.2? I'm just getting fustrated now... arrggg..

First, Droid =/= Android. Droid is a specific type of phone. Android is the OS. Android v2.2 is called Froyo.

Second, if you read the quote you quoted, it says "if you use the stock gmail app. Which is not the same as the stock email app. Thus, you are not seeing the same settings.

I don't use either the stock email or stock messaging apps, but my guess is your best bet is to go into the messaging app and change that notification sound to whatever you want it to be. You can change it under the apps Settings options.

Correct, If I go into the GMail app, YES I can change the ringtone, but I don't use gmail, I use Exchange Active Sync, using the default android mail app (not gmail app). And under that, TRUST ME, there is nothing there that allows you to change the ringtone. (I'm SOL on this one)

So that being said, let me ask another question. Can anyone suggest a good Free or less than $10 GOOD MS Exchange Sync App?

Thanks.

Ok, I know you are anxious and upset but did you even read what I wrote? Please go back and re-read it.

As far as alternative email apps, I recommend K-9. You can do a forum search and find detailed instructions on how to set it up, although its not hard to figure out "on the fly."
