Notification for new mails in folders and subfolders other than inbox as well as easier switching into folders.
John Jackson commented
This issue keeps being reported over and over, for years running, and nothing has been done about it. We need more notification options for inboxes that are being organized automatically.

when rules are created to auto move emails to custom folders, no notifications are received when a new email arrives. need to have the option to be notified of ALL incoming mail
Bryce Buryska commented
the ability to turn on notifications of a specific folder. I use filters to put my school emails in one folder but now I do not get notifications when they arrive.

Many of my emails are moved to su folders automatically as they arrive. But Outlook doesn't have the option to sync mail on those subfolders, or to notify me about them
Tony Camacho commented
the ability to select notifications from selected folders in my inbox rather than only the inbox itself.
Michael Mazur commented
I have emails from certain individuals and with certain terms in the subject filtered to a variety of sub-folders. Since there is no current ability to receive a notification for emails received which are filtered to sub-folders, sometimes I don't even realize I have received anything for a while. This is not a good thing, so implementing notifications for filtered emails would be a great feature.

At the moment, I only get notifications for new emails which are in my inbox - I want to get notifications for all new emails across all my folders and sub-folders. Ideally we should be able to turn notifications on/off for each folder as required.

There should be an option for me to have push notifications for "filtered" messages in outlook mobile/web.
I currently have setup a rule in outlook web. And the rule works properly (moving a certain message to a folder). But the problem is i dont get notified of this message when it it filtered by the rule.
from the forum posts i have seen, it looks like outlook desktop has this feature. But I dont see it when i setup rules in Outlook web.

I would like the ability to receive notifications for emails that go co folders I have set up for rules I've made. I have to manually check multiple folders to know whether I have received an email. other email platforms allow you to sync a number of folders to your liking for which you get notifications.

I get notifications for my regular inbox folder, but I've sorted my email into multiple sub-folders which I do not get any notification from. It is therefore impossible to know when/if I've got a new email from a frequent contact.
We were just mandated to use the Outlook app. on our mobile devices at work and I only get notified when mail arrives in the Inbox, not the subfolders or other folders in the root. This seems like something easy to design into the app. (?) C'mon Microsoft.

To update all folders, not only inbox.
This nuance doesn't allow to have rules, moving emails automatically because of the risk to miss new ones in custom folders.
Plus "New emails" folder would be extremely useful to have all fresh correspondence in one place.
Talking about Android, but suppose also relevant for iOS.
I don't get notifications on Android for my folder level emails

Can we have notifications got a new email and automatically move to folder when I make a rule because we not have a notification when I got new email move to folder
Ahmad Saidawi commented
We've been asking for this for 5 years! getting notified for new emails should be high on the list, and way higher than " listen to my emails" feature! smh

Notification for get a email and move folder

Receive notification for incoming emails, directed to folders by rules.
Robert Slack commented
Provide option to mark mail folders for which you wish to receive notification of arrival of new mail. At present, notifications only occur when new emails arrive in inbox.
Useful if notification tone could be set for each individual folder (similar to how messaging systems work).
Frank Rivers commented
How in the world is this not yet a feature? Are the MS engineers from another planet where professional email users don't use rules to sendemails to subfolders?
Android and iOS stock apps have had this functionality for over TEN years!
Without this BASIC functionality, I cannot recommend this app to my end users.
This is beyond ridiculous!

Be able to be notified by the app for all incoming messages in favorites folders.
