Critical email alert on iphone

Hi

I am currently using blackberry and I get my critical email alerts fine but now I am moving to iPhone 5 so I need to configure iPhone for alerts.

All I need is If I get any email from critical@mydomain.com or “Critical” in subject or body then play a different sound.

I tried with some apps but no success.

Please could you advise me how to do that?

Thank you
Vijay

Hi Taz

Thanks for your quick reply.

I did tried that but the problem is..

I get more than 1000 emails in a day from our alert system lets say serveralert@dmain or switchalert@domain.

I am interested in only email got “Critical” in body or subject.

Any idea?

Thank you

There is no way with an iPhone to selectively alert you based on a certain subject in a certain email.  You either get a new mail notification or you don't.  With iOS 6 as has been mentioned, you can use the VIP feature, but that will alert you to all messages not specific ones.

Jailbreaking would open up possibilities like this, but as the iOS6 on the iPhone 5 Jailbreak hasn't been achieved as yet, that route isn't one you can venture down just yet.

If you want the alerts the way you are used to - stick with the Blackberry.

Sorry

Alan
