E-mail notifications for different accounts?
I just migrated, reluctantly, to iPhone from Palm (hp) Pre. I know there are probably a lot of iPhone enthusiasts for whom "reluctantly" does not compute. I have a few friends who are the same way. I remember sitting at a table between two iPhone with my Pre, who were like, "really? I can't believe you don't have an iPhone!"
Well, I am getting used to iOS, and there are a few things about it that I like better about it, but all in all, if there was any inkling of a future with webOS, I'd go back.
One of the things I miss about webOS is notifications. iOS 5 improved it, but it's still not close to webOS. Among the many shortcomings of iOS notifications compared to webOS is the ability to set notifications for each e-mail account. On my webOS phone, I had three e-mail accounts:
- My work e-mail (Corporate Exchange)
- Gmail (personal)
- Hotmail (junk)
For my work e-mail, I had an immediate notification with sound. And with an additional add-in called "Mode Switcher" I was able to set a time-limit for the sound notification. So, between the hours of 6AM and 9PM on weekdays, if an e-mail arrived on my work account, I got a sound and vibrate. Outside of those times, I only got a visual pop-up, but no sound or vibrate.
For my personal e-mail, I didn't need to have a notification unless I was looking at my phone. So I had that set just to give me a visual popup. But that popup stayed there, so that I could see that I had an e-mail next time I looked at my phone.
For hotmail, I only had it defined on my phone so I could send messages. I had it set to no notifications at all.
So, after that long-winded introduction, here's my question:
As far as I can tell, the e-mail notification settings on iOS apply to all accounts the same. Is this correct, or am I missing something? Is there something available by jailbreak that allows you to set different notification settings for different e-mail accounts?
