    I thought WP 8.1 had separate volume controls for system, ringer ect.

    Did they add this?

    Thanks

    Yep, separate volume rockers for "Ringer + Notifications" and "Media + Apps"
    Was in the DP and is still present with Cyan and 8.1.

    Nope they didn't. Ringer and Notifications is together. When I go to bed I want my ringer on but Notifications off so I don't hear emails coming in while I am sleeping.

    Through Notification centre, change the settings for e-mail. A quick switch will turn off any notification sounds....

    I looked in the Notification area and there is no quick switch to turn off all Notifications and leave the ringer on. If I hit the volume button then the down arrow there is two Volume controls.

    1- Ringer + Notifications
    2 - Media + Apps


    If I want to turn off the email Notifications I have to go into each Email and turn it off then back on in the morning. That is way to time consuming. I thought of quiet hours but then I would have to add everyone I would want to break through. I'm on call for my job and if I get a call they don't all ways call from the same number so Quiet Hours will not work either.

    You could get Metromail then combine all your emails into one place and it has its own quiet hours type program built in. It also has the ability to tab off each account so they'll still be separate. It's quite handy.

    In the setting there should be something called notifications+actions. Just tap that then turn the sound of your email off.

    I have 5 email accounts so that would make it a PITA to turn on and off. I am going to check out the Metromail app.
