Is it possible to use different notification tones for each Gmail account? I.e.: => tone X => tone Y

Maybe with a helper app?

The GMail app already appears to do this on a per-account basis. Simply open an account, then navigate to (Menu button)->More->Settings->Select Ringtone. This works fine on my version ( and allows me to set a different ringtone for each account.

You can also use this to cause some accounts to provide vibrate/audible notifications while others do not. For example, my work account is set to vibrate "for all notifications", but my other accounts have their vibration set to "Never".
