Yahoo App 1.3.5.5631 on Android phone

First,

Please let me apologise if this the wrong place to post my question.

I have a HTC Desire Z phone running Android 2.2.1
I’ve just installed Yahoo Mail App Version 1.3.5.5631 from Yahoo Inc.
I am trying to change the notification sound which the Ymail app uses, I have changed every notification sound used by the phone to various MP3s, but none of them are associated with the sound made by the Yahoo App notification, not even the phone’s e-mail notification sound.

Please can you let me know where the App picks up its notification sound from so that I can try to change it.
It would be great if this could be added to a future release too.

Thanks

  • Hey Mark,
    currently it is not possible to change the notification sound used by the Yahoo! Mail for Android app. Sorry to disappoint you there.

  • Hello Andreas,

    Thank you for the reply to my post. That's a pitty...

    Lets hope this can be incorporated into a future update to the App.

    Perhaps they could look at synchronising the Yahoo Calendar with the Android Calendar too

    Fingers crossed :)Mark

  • Hi Andreas (or whomever is now reading this). It's been 6 months since you replied to Mark's post below, yet the app still does not (or does not appear to) have this basic feature.

    It should (rather obviously) have been included in the original release and (even more obviously) when it was very tactfully pointed out by Mark that you'd forgotten it (it must have been an oversight because no sensible person would have omitted this basic functionality) there should have been an update including it released shortly after.

    Why has this not happened? Will you be correcting this mistake soon? Will you be correcting this mistake ever? If so, please provide an approximate date.

    Thanks,
    Mike

  • Hello,

    Can you atleast provide the name of the alert tone so that I can use that for all my other email accounts?

    Thank you!

  • What is the name of the "alert tone" that Yahoo uses so that I can set it the same for my other email accounts?

  • Almost a year later and it still seems that you can't change the notification sound. I just wanted post another request for this feature to be added!! :)
