Over the past few days I've been contacted by a number of people looking for an answer to what seems to be a very common question.

How can you get alerts of new email in subfolders and also when you get email from important people (eg your boss)

Well after much searching one of my colleagues (Jonathan) forwarded me details of the WatchFlag solution.

Watchflag compares incoming email and text messages against custom rules to provide distinct alerts based on sender, subject and more.

It works on Windows Mobile 5 and 6.0 devices too!
