iPhone push subfolder only

I get 200 emails per day, so sometimes I need to turn off Outlook for extened chunks of time so I am not distracted. But...I need to be alerted to email messages from our leadership team as soon as they arrive, even when I am tuned out of Outlook in general. My thought was to create an Outlook rule that moved emails from that group to a specific subfolder of my inbox, and then set my iPhoen to push only that subfolder. Doesn't work, because Inbox is always pushed by default, meaning my phoen would alert me to every incoming message and recreate the distraction factor all over again. Is there a workaround or an alternative solution to accomplish what I need?

Create a new mailbox and forward the email to that mailbox. Now setup alerts on that mailbox and since only you know what emails are coming in you can safely turn off the regular mailbox alerts and get your peace back.

Hello,

Why don't you disable the new message alerts in Outlook them minimize it. You can then create an Outlook rule to send a desktop alert whenever a message arrives from one of the leadership team members.
