    Turning new email notifications on/off in Android handset

    As of now I am not getting any notification on the arrival of new emails in my Android based Samsung handset. I guess there may be some mishap with the settings. Can you please tell me the option to turn new email notifications on/off in the device?

    Your assumption is right like this issue will be most probably because of some settings change. You can easily solve this issue by going through the settings section. First you have to open the email application in your phone. Then the application menu should be opened and choose the option ‘Preferences & Accounts’. Choose your account from the section labelled ‘Accounts’. You can select ‘ON’ or ‘OFF’ in the ‘show icon’ field. You have also option to change the alert settings. There are options to set like ‘vibrate’, ‘mute’, ‘system sound’ or else ‘ring tone’.
