Email Notification Sound Wont Shutup!
Okay so I have a AOL email setup. I go into MENU then Account Settings then Select Ringtone to disable the email alert noise. I select silent which it is previously set on default ringtone. Then I hit ok and exit out and go back in and make sure it is still set on silent and it is. Well then a new AOL email comes in and guess what??? It still makes the DEFAULT RINGTONE noise. I go back into settings and behold it somehow got switched back to Default even though I know it was set on silent. Is anyone else experiencing this? Its not a huge deal but I'd rather not have a noise for every email I get. I just want a noise for texts,calls,and voicemails...

Seems like the setting is not "sticking" on the AOL app. I would suggest, if you haven't already, to shut down the phone and restart again. Then set the ringtone on the app and see how it works. If this does not resolve, then erase the app, restart the phone as before and reinstall.
If that does not work, you may need to contact the developer of the app to report the bug.

Exciting news!! I managed to fix the issue.
click on the "messaging" icon then click on the message hard key (second hard key from the left at bottom).
select "settings"click "display message notifications in status bar"
select your text message ringtone & then select your choice of vibrate options.
go to hard home key.
Select "email" icon then select 2nd hard key from the left bottom.
select "account settings"
Click to check "email notifications" box
select ringtone = silent
under vibrate, select vibrate when email arrives
This is the ONLY combination of selections that worked to turn of the constant email alerts. I can live with the very small vibrate that comes across with each email.
If you find a better fix, Please let me know. Oh and just FYI, I am also utilizing an AOL email accnt.
