    Not that I know of. As far as I know, all notifications share the same sound. Unless you can set it within the app, I don't think it's possible.

    Yes you can set different notification sounds for message, email, and calendar in addition to your default notification sound.

    Go to personalize> notification sound

    I used to forget to do this all the time. Any time you are looking to be able to change a setting, it's good to hit that button and check in the menus. I never really delved into the menus for my email, so, it was nice to see this in here. I just may change the sound for my email to distinguish them. Glad that his was posted!!

    Also, don't forget to hit the Thanks button for repligator.

    If you create filters in Gmail that apply labels to specific senders, you can then have the Gmail app use a different sound for each label. I'm not sure if creating the contact group automatically applies a label. You may be able to create a filter that does that. Play around with that to get the different labels you want.

    Then in the Gmail app, go to Menu>More>Settings>(your account)>Sync inboxes and labels, and set the sync for each label you want. Once you have the labels syncing, go back one screen and scroll down to Labels to notify. There you will see each of the labels you're syncing. Tap the arrow next to each, enable the notification and select the ringtone you want.
