Default seperate tones for notifications

Is it possible to set different ring tones for SMS vs email? And is is possible to use a different sound for each email account? I get a lot of mail for different reasons and it would be nice to know what account got the message so I know if i need to check it right away.

You can have different tones for the Gmail app, Mail app, and Messages. Check the settings in Gmail and Messages and it will allow you to set the notification tone. To set the tone for the Mail app, it's done in the main settings from your home screen, menu>settings>sound & display. But you can't have separate notification sounds for separate email accounts set up under the Mail app.

And welcome to the forum by the way!

someone needs to make a mail app that can do this. I have an exchange account for work and two pop3 accounts for personal. would be really cool to know what account I got the mail on without checking.

what about a 3rd party email app?

And thanks for the welcome. So far this is an evaluation phone for work, but I think I want to keep it.

I'm not aware of a 3rd party app that will do this, but I haven't gone looking for one either. Can't hurt to do some Market searches and see if there's something that will suit your needs.

Anyone have any experience with K9?

Edit #1:
FYI K-9 Mail seems to be pretty good and can do different notification sounds for each account. I have not tried to set up my work exchange account yet, but it looks pretty slick. Only thing I cannot figure out, is how to get custom mp3s to work as notification sounds.

I think I found where the K-9 mail sounds are kept, but was unable to copy my mp3 from my SD card to the folder on the system using Astro. Does anyone know why I can see the files but cannot copy to the system or how I can copy to the system?

Edit #2:
Okay updated to the current version and it works with my ringtones. If anyone is looking for a good mail program with better functionality than the stock one, look into K-9 mail.
