    Does anyone know a way to temporarily turn email alerts off on the phone? For example, while I'm at work, I get my emails both on my PC and on my phone. I still want to have my phone out and on to receive calls/texts, but have some kind of 'off mode' for my emails. I haven't found anything in the options for something like this. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Under sounds, you can change it to phone calls only.

    Unfortunately, you won't get text alerts either.

    pharaoh meant that you wont hear the alert for texts, not that you won't receive them. and his method only disables the sound, it doesn't turn off the email.

    I've created a custom sound profile called "work" with everything identical to the Normal profile except the email alerts set to silent.

    Yep, Thats the only way I know how to do it as well. The only thing I have to keep reminding myself to do is syncronize before leaving the office so I don't have to go thru and read 50 emails that I've already read.
