In iOS6, on iPhone 5, how can I disable sound and vibration for a specific mail account only? I have one mail accounts that is a bit to highly frequented, which results in a lot of ringing and vibration. However all the other mail accounts behave just fine.

Unfortunately I only see one global setting for the whole mail app.

    Maybe you can consider setting mail retrieval to Manual for this account, which will only check for new mails when opening the Mail app? – Gerry Oct 18 '12 at 12:12
  • That'd be one solution, yes. Not optimal though. – bitbonk Oct 18 '12 at 14:00

You should be able to accomplish this from the Notifications section of the Settings app, which allows you to set the kind of alerts each app uses:

Notifications in Settings Mail in Notifications

In that panel, each of your mail accounts will be listed separately, and can be configured individually. I have one account, for example, set to not even badge the Mail.app icon, let alone play sound:

List of accounts Settings for mail account that does not notify
