View Full Version : Assign ringtone to email sender?

06-03-2007, 11:51 AM

I have a BB 8700. I would like to assign a custom ringtone to Paypal pmt notifications. The email header looks like this:

To: Obad Imports <sasha.obad@<hidden>>
From: "buyer@<hidden>" <buyer@<hidden>>
Sender: sendmail@<hidden>

I assumed that I could assign a custom ringtone to "sendmail@<hidden>" but it doesn't appear to work. I guess I can only assign a ringtone to whomevers in the "From:" field? Is there a workaround to this?

You will need a 3rd Party app to do this. Assigning ringtones only works for the phone part of the BB (unfortunately). There are several programs that can add this to your BB.
Check out the Aftermarket Software forum, there are several.

The only one I can think of off the top of my head is WebMessenger's Alerts program.

Good luck.

Thank you. WebMessenger's Alerts does exactly what I want it to.

..or you could use Level 1 messaging/alerts assuming that you don't have any other senders that you want to assign an alert to (or don't mind all your priority senders having the same alert).
