Yes, its possible, has been for a while, see the EmailHeader SOAP header.

It seems that the answer is "No," but I would love to be proven wrong here.

The answer is currently no. There are plans afoot to add a soap header that controls if emails that are normally triggered by the app, also get triggered by the API.

Thanks for the update (and quick response!) -- This will be a welcome addition. 

In the interim, we'll probably just fire off an email message in our sforce-connected application itself, rather than use Salesforce.com's email functionality.

Is this still not possible - 2+ years later?

I don't see this field in Task API.

Thanks.

I am not using "API" - I am using Apex Code to build the app.

I am just creating a new Task object in Apex and was hoping there would be field to specify whether notification e-mail will be sent.

I don't see such as field in the Task object.

Is there equivalent of SOAP header for Apex Code?
