HTC Droid Incredible: Turn Off Email Notification

I receive tons of email messages in the middle of the night. There’s nothing more annoying than constantly getting an email notification when you’re trying to sleep. I just had to turn the sounds off. Here’s how to disable the notification sound on the HTC Droid Incredible.

1. Open the Mail app.

2. Press Menu.

3. Select More.

4. Tap Settings.

5. Go to Notification settings and set the settings to your liking.

    Yahoo Mail recently changed their look and the notifications started again. Going into mail and hitting menu no longer gives me the options above. Instead I get this:
    I can’t figure out how to turn it off through Yahoo Mail or other settings. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    Jesus H. Christ, thanks for that. I got a new Android phone and couldn’t sleep last night.

    I’ve had my email notification sound turned off for each of the three accounts I have on my HTC Incredible and never had a problem for over a year and all of a sudden, I’m getting a sound notification only for one of them (gmail), even though it shows that it is turned off. It seems to have happened since the latest update that happened a few days ago. Help!

  4. Lindee says

    I have a droid 2, and when I turned the email notifications down, I don’t hear my text notification, so how do I fix that. I really don’t want my email notifications, just my text ones. Help!!!

    I had to turn down the volume on notifications to get it to work. Turning the notification sound off didn’t work.

  6. Justin says

    I turned my email notifications off and I still had everything going off, so I deleted my email account and put it back in and now my email inbox is gone… Any suggestions?

  7. Jeff says

    I turned my email notifications off, I still get a sound. I can turn ‘notification’ sound off at the master level but then I don’t hear sms messages

    Thanks for the help! The Incrdible should come with at least a Manual or disc showing the Basic features of the phone!
