settings > Accounts and Sync > select the top account then account settings. Go to general settings > notifications and Alerts>email notifications. Uncheck Audio Notification.

There's probably an easier way to get there but that does it.

Ok, I know this is better late than never. I had same problem getting rid of the email alert and finally figured it out. So first go to your email icon. Secondly, you are going to hit the bottom left button and 6 options will come up. You will then go to account settings, and from there you can set the frequency you want your emails checked, and under email notifications just click that off.

I was wondering if someone can help me out:

I want to have a different "beep" noise for each different kind of alert (one noise for messages, one for voicemail, one for "unsent" messages, one for email, etc).  I know that on previous phones I owned I could do this---but haven't figured it out on my Galaxy S.   Embarrased Can someone please give me a hand? 

Note:  I am not trying to figure out how to put a song as a beep, just want to know how to have different beeps for different notifications!

Thanks!   Big Smile
