How do I turn off email notification?

I have a Samsung IntensityII.  I have had the phone for a year, suddenly it started sending me email notifications.  I DO NOT want notifications.  It's driving me nuts.  How do I turn it off?

Not applicable

Labsnquilts, I don't want you to go nuts! I would like to help! I will need a little more clarification to understand this issue. Have you setup mobile email on your phone or are these messages sent to you via text message? Where are the emails coming from? If these are sent to you via SMS, you can block all SMS from email or from specific emails. To do this, login to your My Verizon account on, choose My Services, Verizon Safeguards, Spam Controls.

Let me know if you need additional assistance.

Re: How do I turn off email notification?

I'm having a similar problem -- see my thread at

I have a Samsung Intensity (not a II, just the original, red one).

I signed up for Mobile Email. I love it, but I can't get it to stop notifying me so much, so I have to turn off my phone completely when I'm at work. If I turn the sound off or even to Alerts Only, it vibrates when an email comes in.

Is there a compatibility problem with the Intensity phones?
