    Default How does Mobile interact with delivery filters?

    I have a user who has just shifted from a Blackberry (with a forwarding rule bouncing new incoming messages to its native mailbox) to an iPhone... at which point he was hoist on his own petard, penalized for being smart:

    We switched him to the iPhone's native IMAP client, only to discover that since, unlike "real" Outlook, it doesn't have a synthesized "Unread Messages" pseudo-folder, and it *doesn't push or alert on new messages unless they're in INBOX*, he didn't know when he had new mail.

    He's temporarily disabled his filters, but it's a pain.

    Does Zimbra Mobile do anything whatever to assuage this pain? He'd like to be able to both filter his mail, and know it's arrived. And he's my boss, so *I'd* like that, too. Don't mind paying for Mobile, if it will fix this problem.

    iPhones only alert when a message hits the Inbox. A alternative which I use myself is to install the application MailTones. I am on call so do not want my iPhone to alert on every inbound email to my Inbox; so instead I drop the work alerts into a separate folder and then alert on the specific subject.
