Maybe EE is not the best place to ak Android quetions, but I'll try.
I have just purchased the Android Samsung Galaxy S (I'm in the UK) and am very sadened to learn that altough exchange subfolers can be seen, there is no way to be alerted of a ne email arriiving wihtin a subfolder.

This makes it useless to me as i have a great many subfolders and many rules organasing my emails.

I wanted to find a suitable alternative third party app. I have previously used Dataviz Roadsync but the latest version has been slated in the market place with hundeds of reviews stating it is broken.

So what do I do?

Touchdown offers a free trial and is considered by many to be a good Exchange app. Check it out?

You'll be hard pressed to find any mobile device that is going to notify you when new messages are placed in subfolders, and it's not because of the phone itself. The rule that moves the message into the subfolder triggers before the notification to the client. Same thing with Windows Mobile devices, same thing with Blackberry.. Unfortunately, it is what it is.

Touchdown seems to be the leader,however has slowed down the device a bit. Maybe android is not up to heavy business use. Will see
