    I'm looking for an e-mail client in which I can define a phrase so the app can notify me with a special sound if it receives a mail that contains this phrase in the mail subject.
    Phrase: Cookies
    Mail: My grandma's cookies recipe
    The app: special alert

    Well, Mail Droid allows to add this kind of rule but the whole mail subject has to be the same.
    In my case it doesn't work 'cause i get mails with the mentioned phrase + various id :/
    In terms of K9 - I can't even sign up on my gmail.

    It's been a while since I used K9, but it is possible to sign in to GMail. You'll need to set an "application password" because it doesn't support GMail's current default initialisation/authentication. In fact I'm sure the error message you got will have told you that it would need an application-specific password. Go into you Google account settings, you'll find "App Passwords" in there under "Security" and can generate a new one there. Then use that in K9 for the email account password.
