    Not with the mail app but I'm experiencing it with the calendar app. I even brought it to the Apple store and had one of the genius bar staff figure it out. They couldn't. I ended moving all my recurring/new appointments to the reminder app. I tried numerous restores and checked all settings and still nothing. Hopefully with the next software update these bugs will be fixed.

    with iOS 6 we now have more control over some settings that we did not with previous OS's

    try looking here: Settings > Notifications > Mail > [desired email account] > New Mail Sound > [select desired sound]

    Thumbs up Re: Mail sound notification problem

    I know this is an older thread but I have noticed almost the same thing with my 4S even on the latest 6.1 iOS. I changed my "New Mail" sound and all of the incoming mail uses that sound EXCEPT my default mail. Now, what I have not tested is if that is because it is the Default Mail or because it is Gmail specifically. The interesting thing is that I have the same settings on my iPad and every incoming Mail sound is the same. No issues.

    Anyone have any idea what the problem is?

    Update: I FINALLY found the answer to why this is happening. The basic answer is that you need to change the Mail Notification Sound in BOTH the Sound Settings AND the Notification Settings. Here is the link to the forum where this was discussed: Email Notification Tone - Can't Customize? - MacRumors Forums
