Set Up Custom iPhone Alerts for Email Accounts

Knowing the email account you’re getting a new message in is helpful to stay organized while on the go. Here’s how to set up custom iPhone alert tones for each account.

Apple’s iOS 5 didn’t allow you  to set up custom alerts and notifications for different email accounts, they all had the same tone. Now with iOS 6, you can set different alerts for each account so you know which email address you’ve received a new message.

Customize iPhone Email Alerts

To set up custom sounds, go to Settings >> Notifications.
