I recently got an iPhone 4 with the new iOS 6.0.1.  I had set my notification sound for when I receive mail and, two weeks later (today), decided to chenge it to something else.  I went into the Settings>Sounds>New Mail to change it to the default Ding and then hit the home button to close the screen.  I got an email and the notification was the previous sound.  I went into Settings>Notifications>Mail>New Mail Sound and saw it was set to the previous sound and so I changed that to Ding and hit the home button again.  I got another email and the sound still hasn't changed, even after turning my phone off and on again.  Is there a third place I need to make the change? 


*Don't tell me to RTFM; I already have lol



Thanks for any help you can give me!!

iPhone 4, iOS 6.0.1
