Question Cancelling tone/vibration notification of an incoming e-mail?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

I've put together a little application that implements the FolderListener interface to send an auto-response when an e-mail with a particular subject line is received.

The problem is, while deleting the incoming e-mail is no problem, I'm not sure how I would go about silence the tone/vibration an incoming e-mail would typically generate.

Can anyone lend a hand? I've included the relevant portions of my code below. The thought I had was to use NotificationsManager.cancelImmediateEvent to silence the event, but it doesn't seem to be working - or I may simply have the wrong parameters. Thank you!

public class MobileApplication extends Application implements FolderListener {
    // Required method; executed when a message is added to the store.
    public void messagesAdded(FolderEvent e) {        
        // Retrieve the message and folder it was added to.
        Message originalMessage = e.getMessage();
        Folder messageFolder = originalMessage.getFolder();

        // If the folder of the new message is the INBOX...
        if (messageFolder.getType() == Folder.INBOX) {
            // Get the message subject.
            String subject = originalMessage.getSubject();
            // Check the subject line for the 'tag'.
            if (subject.indexOf("<TAG>") != -1) {
                // Kill the tone/vibrations that normally would occur when a message is received.
                NotificationsManager.cancelImmediateEvent(e.MESSAGE_ADDED, e.MESSAGE_ADDED, e, null);

the easy way to kill the tone/vibration on email receipt as a user is to change the Profile to Phone Only or Off - perhaps you can access this function?
