Different notifications for different email accounts?

Different notifications for different email accounts?

I have a iPhone 3GS. I was wondering if there was a way to have different notifications for different email accounts? e.g. I want Lady Gaga to play when I get an email from my Yahoo account and I want Katy Perry to play when I get an email from my Gmail account. Is this possible without jailbreaking it?

Re: Different notifications for different email accounts?

Apple does not allow or provide a way to set different notification sounds for different email accounts.

 

You have three options:

  1. Live with it as is.
  2. Jailbreak the device and do what you want (note this voids all warranties)
  3. Find another device that will allow you to set unique notifications.

You can purchase the PushMail app and get the functionality you desire.  That app has the ability to use different alert tones for emails, as well as setting "quiet times" that you won't get alerts, etc.  I found it to be a great app for me.
