Getting emails on my phone

I only want to have my phone alert me of emails that end up in my inbox.  I do not want to be alerted for spam, or emails that get routed to other folders (other than inbox) due to email rules that I set up.
Can this be done?  I am considering both in the iPhone and the Android.
Thanks,
JP

While I don't have an Android phone, I would have to assume it has this capability, since most smart phones do.  But as for the iPhone, I can assure you it does.  Once you have your email setup on the iPhone, you have the ability to choose which folders receive push updates.

This means if you have folders x, y, and z, but you only want to receive emails in folders x and z on your iPhone, then you set x and z as 'Mail Folders to Push'.

According to wikipedia...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Push_e-mail

Android currently supports this functionality for gmail, exchange, and hotmail.

"Google AndroidAndroid's built-in Gmail client supports push e-mail for Gmail accounts set up to sync with the phone.
Android also supports Microsoft Exchange accounts natively through its default mail application
Recently also Hotmail has been made push configurable for android smartphones through the default mail application."

Hi,

I have an Xperia X10 with Moxier mail installed configured against Exchange 2007 ActiveSync.

This client allows you to select which folders to sync on the device and select additional folders if you want to. Either Push Mail or Pull options are available.

The default Pop 3 client is pull only and doesn't support selecting folders other than the default ones. There appear to be no rules available in either client but I would have thought these could be configured at the server end as opposed to the client?

Regards,


RobMobility.
