    I know I can't.

    And I know Apple have make it so I can't.

    What I'd like to ask your opinions about it WHY can't I?

    What do you think the reasons are that a group of people would sit down at a design/planning meeting and deliberately decide to not let me (the user) change the sound that I get when I receive an email?

    What thought processes were they going through when it was decided to deliberately fix it and allow no customisation?

    I can't seem to fathom why a group of people would sit around a table and deliberately impose such a limitation.

    No "group of people". Just Steve, alone, in his sensory deprivation tank.

    No reason. That's the answer more often than not.

    Or SJ will come out and say, "Custom email alerts. We weren't the first to do it, but we'll do it right." And a sonic wave of euphoria will pour over you when you finally hear, "You've Got Mail!" as sung by John Mayer.
