Yes. Install any mail client from market, like mail droid, k9, etc.

O.K.,thanks. I'm using gmail now, but i guess that i'll have to switch. I have three mail accounts…Gmail, AOL, and Verizon. I'm assuming that i can just switch them to the new one(mail droid, etc,), and all would be well?

I would think so.

O.K. I tried it, and it doesn't work. I believe that the "mail sent" sound has to be in the systems folder to begin with, and it can't be added by a mail client. For example: The "sounds" settings in my wife's iPhone have a new mail, and a sent mail category. You can attach ringtones for each. The SGSIII doesn't have this format(in stock, anyway), and i probably would have to root, in order to add the "mail sent", to the sounds file. If i'm wrong, and i hope that i am, please let me know. Thanks for any help.
P.S. After using a MacBook Pro, and an iPhone for so long, i just got used to hearing that sound when i sent out an email or a text msg. I guess that it's a "comfort" thing.

I wouldn't go with stock email app, esp considering I keep changing ROMs every now and then. Having a non stock email app takes your dependence on the app that's bundled with the ROM every time you change it. Plus stock email is kinda very low on features compared to many free emails apps out there.

Thanks. I will be splitting my hard drive very soon(i have a MacBook Pro), and i guess Windows 7 on the PC side should be o.k. when i root. First thing that i want to do is get into those sound files, then try an "almost like stock" rom, with 4.2.1. If you have an recommendations, i'd like to hear them. Thanks, again.
