Turn off email notifications

I have a Samsung A5 that I just got.  I want to turn off the sound/notification that I get everytime an email comes in.  But when I go to [Sounds and Notifications -- App notifications -- Email ] there is no option to turn it off.  Under gmail's app I have the option to block the app from issuing notifications, but this doesn't seem to exist for the generic email program (which I've linked to my gmail, perhaps unwisely).

Maybe there's a notification sound "silent"? 
If yes, change the tone to "silent".

If not, download a silent ringtone and set is as the notification tone and turn off vibrate.

IF you don't want it to background sync, turn off sync completely for the email app.

Hope I helped!

Thanks both of you.  
I got rid of the email app.  But there was a way in that I found to set it to silent, as you suggested Ara.  Thanks for your ideas.
