Default specific sound notification for certain email messages

Please Login to Remove!

I have been trying for days to figure out how to set up a specific sound notification from one particular email address. The messages that come from this email address(sender) are extremely important, and I would like a specific sound so that I know this message has arrived. Any assistance is much appreciated. My phone is a 9630. Thank you.

Go into your BIS account page and set a filter to forward that particular incoming email address to your device as a "Level 1 notification".

Then on the device change your current profile such that "Level 1" messages have a unique tone.

Thank you so much; I was also looking for this information. My problem is that I am a BES user. I've gone to email options and set up a filter that my messages from a certain contact are forwarded as level 1 messages. But that's not right, is it? I mean, where do I specify that I want to forward the message back to myself? It may sound silly to you, but I've no idea how to do this. I have a verizon 9630 also. Thank you!

Have you tried just setting up a Contact Alert for the specific contact?

That's what I do. Family members have an alert, and a couple business contacts have another. It's great for knowing when you have to look and when you can get to it later.

Thank you! I've set a custom reply for the contact. Now I just have to wait until a message comes. Appreciate it!
