To change the sound in your iphone go to the sound file you want to replace the default one with and rename it to the name "new-mail.caf" or whichever file it is you are replacing
  • cd/System/Library/Audio/UISounds
  • /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/new-mail.caf
  • /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/sms-received.caf
  • /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/alarm.caf

There is no way you can change the sound of the Email tones in your iphone, you need to jailbreak your iphone, There is no such third party or apple store application which can change the emails tones, i wont advice you to jailbreak your iphone as it will void your iphone warranty.

Hi. Thanks for the details on how to change the settings. I don't understand where exactly I need to change this file. In my phone, within iTunes, or somewhere else? Thank you.
