funnily enough, this came up on the podcast this week, i believe. it would be up to an individual app to make this possible, and as of now, i dont think there is an email app that i know of (not any reliable ones, anyway) that have this feature

There isn't any apps that I know of that allows you to set different notifications for different contacts email addresses but you can use options list below to set different alerts for default email and text accounts also there is a number of apps on market that can set different custom alerts.
Contact Custom Ringer Alert:
Phone > Contacts > Select Contacts Name > Left Menu Button > Edit > Scroll to Additional Info > Scroll future to Ringtone > Select Ringer > Save
Messaging > Messaging Settings > Email > Notifications > Select Ringtone
Messaging > Messaging Settings > Text Messaging > Select Ringtone
Settings > Sounds > Phone Rintones
Default Generic Notification: (This is used if custom alert isnt accessable like when sd card is mounted)
Settings > Sounds > Notification Ringtones
@strikeback3, I was able to set ringtones per contact for phone calls and text messages using the app Ringo. First I would take a MP3 and load into Rind Droid and create and save the ringtone from the MP3. Then I would open Ringo and set the ringtone to the appropriate contact for phone or text.

Have You Tried WhoIsIt?
According to the the info @ AppBrain:
* Setup different ringtones and vibration patterns for Gmail, SMS and MMS for each contact
* Announce (speak) incoming caller, Gmail, and SMS/MMS sender
* Define different volume/vibration profiles
* Setup contact-specific vibration patterns
I haven't tried this application myself but thought I'd pass on information.
