Android and different notification sounds

How to set individual notification sounds for different types of messages (SMS, calendar, email) on Android smartphone. Yes, HTC has support and it’s possible to have different sounds for incoming SMS and Email.

Navigate to Notification Sound settings (Personalize menu on HTC can be opened directly – just click on palette icon in the lower right corner):

Menu -> Settings -> Personalize -> Notification Sound

After “Notification Sound” is opened, you can set different sounds for:

Default notification

Unfortunately, default HTC mail client supports only one sound for all email accounts. I’m not happy but I can live with that. On the other hand, K-9 email client (which has many excellent features and is free) supports different notification sounds for each email account. At least it always exists alternative option in Android World.
