    Is there a way to automatically silence email notifications at night?

    I get emails at all hours of the day and I don't want my phone beeping and buzzing all night long every time I get a new email.

    From the main window turn the volume all the way down and the speaker is muted.
    This is not good if your taking calls, then you can turn off email notifications.
    Maybe this does not work on your phone.

    Timeriffic is a free app that changes things like notification alert settings at scheduled times. I use it to automatically mute the ringer when I leave for work and turn it back on when I am home.

    i use an app called profiles that lets you make custom profiles where you can control the volume for different settings independently. for example, my normal profile keeps the volume levels high, and i have a sleep one that only allows for my phone ringer to be heard whereas my notifications are silent with no vibrate. the cool part about the app too is that you can set it to automatically switch profiles at different times of day, so you dont have to worry about changing them

    I'll have to look into those. But I do find it amusing that no one suggested leaving the phone in the other room. Guess we're all addicted.

    Thanks folks. This is exactly what I am looking for. I would want something that would turn off the email notifications but not the phone ringer, in case I got a call.

    I use Quick Profiles and silence notifications when I go to bed.

    I also use Profile. I have profiles (work, normal, and night). You can use time-based profiles but I don't. It does have a "bug" in which you should disable system volume monitoring or it will disable the active profile and go to none. This applies to the Incredible

    I have used Profiles and Timeriffic over the last three weeks. Finally uninstalled Profiles this morning. It can be unreliable in "timed" mode. Timeriffic is much more intuiitive and has been 100% reliable. I have sound and notification schemes for weekdays, week nights, weekends etc. The sound profiles settings on my Storm are probably the only thing I missed at first but Timeriffic and Profiles have made a fullfledged " INCfanboy".

    I use Audio Manager. I have a "bedtime" profile. Basically, all the sounds except the ringer and alarms I have set to silent. That way, I still wake up in time for work, and if someone should call me (and it'd better be an emergency), I still hear it.

    I use Locale, as it will do the audio adjustments for me... Not only does it do it based of time, but I have it based off calendar events (so it's silent during a meeting, etc). also has settings based off locations.

    I've decided that I'm not important enough to have to know about an email the second I receive it. I've turned off audible email notification and check the notification bar on a periodic basis throughout the day.

    I use "Setting Profiles". I set a night profile that turns off all notifications for mail and sms and turns my ringer all the way up with a loud ringer.

    Really super nice way to have auto profiles kick in for night and day settings.

    FoxyRing is all you need for this, if you're still looking.

    Thanks guys. Yeah, I would prefer not to have to remember to do it, so something automatic would be great. Plus, I don't want to just put it in airplane mode in case I get a call I need to take.

    An app that would also bring location based profiles into play would be great. If I'm out from the house at 10:00 at night, I would like my phone NOT to go into a silent mode automatically.

    Does anyone know if the apps mentioned function differently if they are in a dock or take into account your gps fix?

    The location settings...you can tell it to turn off email notifications at certain times of day if you are in certain locations?

    I push the button in the power widget that turns off syncing before I go to sleep.

    "Setting Profiles" will allow time based profiles based on location as well as location based settings based on time...

    i.e. I am at home and it is between 11pm and 8 am....etc.
