Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Change Email Message Tone in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

Change the ringtone for incoming email messages is the best way that can be done to help you recognize that you have new email messages. If needed, you can set different tones for different email accounts(if you have multiple accounts) so that you can easily know to which account the email message is sent for, or set different tone for your priority contacts so that you can easily know that you have email messages from contacts you have marked as priority senders.


How to change email message tone?
You can change the email message tone by using three different methods: from the general sound settings menu, from an email account settings menu and from the priority sender settings menu.


Method #1: From the general sound settings menu
This method can be used if you have set the "Default notification sound" as the email message tone. But, you have to remember that this method will change the notification tone for other apps that also use the default notification sound as the notification tone. See the following steps to do so:
  1. On any screen, swipe down the top of the screen to open up the notification panel and then tap at the top of the screen to go to the settings menu.

  4. Select the required notification tone.
  5. Tap OK button.
  6. The general notification sound has been changed.


Method #2: From an email account settings menu
FYI, this method can be used to change the email message tone for a single account only. Thus, if you have multiple email accounts, you have to set email message tone for each account separately if you want to use different tones for different accounts. See the following steps to change email message tone for certain account:
  1. Open the stock Email app.
  2. Tap or long press the Recent apps key to open up the additional options and then select Settings.
  3. Tap Manage accounts.
  4. Tap the required email account you want to change its tone.
  5. Make sure to check the box next to Email notifications to enable this option so that you can receive notifications when new email messages arrive.
  6. Now, tap Notification sound.
  7. Select the required tone. FYI, if you select Default notification sound then it'll use the tone that has been selected in the general notification sound (see method #1).
  8. Tap OK button.
  9. The email message tone for the selected account has been changed.


Method #3: From the priority sender settings
If you have set some email addresses or contacts with email addresses as priority senders, then you can set different tone for them separately by using the following steps:
  1. Open the stock Email app.
  2. Tap or long press the Recent apps key to open up the additional options and then select Settings.
  3. Tap Priority sender settings.
  4. Make sure to check the box next to Email notifications to enable this option so that you can receive notifications when new email messages from priority senders arrive.
  5. Now, tap Notification sound.
  6. Select the required tone. FYI, if you select Default notification sound then it'll use the tone that has been selected in the general notification sound (see method #1).
  7. Tap OK button.
  8. The email message tone for priority senders has been changed.
