Alerts in outlook


Outlook version
Outlook 365 64 bit
Email Account
Exchange Server
Hey Guys,

I'm trying to figure this out, google hasn't been much help.

I've created a rule so emails from a specific person are put in a folder, but in doing this I no longer receive notifications on my phone that the person has emailed me, how can I apply this rule but still be notified? I don't want it to be a client side rule either, I want it applied when outlook is closed.

Driving me crazy, I just wanna organize my emails but still be alerted to getting them.

When the server moves the message, you don't get an alert because alerts are only for mail in the inbox - and the rule moves it as soon as it hits your mailbox. It's my understanding they are looking at adding notification for all folders in the Outlook mobile app but I don't know when it might be added.
