    You can. It's all in Settings.app Just go under 'Mail' and 'Messages' and adjust you're settings to what you would like.

    Well.... If you can't fix it I recommend you do a backup of your iPhone's data and than a restore. That should hopefully fix the problem.

    Oh now I see what you mean... Yes that's only possible if you jailbreak. There is no legit way to do it.

    I believe you have to be on iOS 5.0 to set custom tones for mail, texts, etc. the legit way you do with ringtones. You're limited to 25-30 sec. like you would a ringtone for a phone call. Anything beyond that and you will have to jailbreak and ssh the tones in yourself to the appropriate section.

    Tones are only for when you receive notifications (texts, mail, tweets, etc.) again you will have to jailbreak to set sounds for sending your notifications.
