I use my iPhone 6 for checking several email accounts, and get the same ping sound when I receive an email from any one of them.

But my email from work (via Outlook), is becoming increasingly important, and I'd like a notification sound that distinguishes email arrivals just to that account. I suppose I could live with turning off email notification sounds on all but my work account. But an email filter that identified a particular sender (network monitoring software) or a particular phrase in the title (Computer Room is on fire!) and generated an even more distinctive sound would be even better.

Any suggestions? Thanks...Lyle

It's possible to select a different notification sound for every email account, you can also select "None" for your email notification sounds.

Go to Settings - Notifications on your iPhone, scroll down to Mail and tap it. You should see the accounts set up on your device:

Tap one of them, to get to the next page:

Here, select "Sounds" and choose the sound you prefer, or tap "None":

If it looks like this, you'll have to scroll upwards to see "None".

Hope that helps.
