Default Alert for emails from specified persons?

Is there a way for the BB to sound an alert or vibrate when an e-mail arrives from a specific person in the address book? I would find this very useful.

If you are using BIS, create a filter on your web account for each email address you want to have a special notifier. Check the box that says "Level 1 Notification" in the filter. Then go into your BB profiles and set the Level 1 notification to whatever you want. You'll need to set it in each profile you will use.

From the Profiles screen, you can use the "Use Active Profile Except For" and add address book entries to your important calls list and change the ring tone for them. I don't think this effects email notifications though.
