    Hello everyone. I am new to this site and fairly new to the Android community. I am coming from the Blackberry environment and my company is allowing us to choose which new smartphone we want to begin using in place of a Blackberry. I am researching different Android devices and I am going to lean toward the Samsung Galaxy S3, for obvious reasons.

    Here is my question. Is there an App that will alert / notify me with a sound from a specific email sender, or subject matter or body of an email? I am not talking about custom SMS or Phone alerts.

    Using my current Blackberry as a reference I have an app called WebMessenger Message Alerts. With this app I can go into my native mail app and in the menu I can choose to create a "new Email alert" a form opens up and presents many options.
    I can choose from different conditions, such as
    From field
    Subject line...
    Message body...
    To line...
    CC line...

    Then I can choose an Action, such as;
    Sound/Vibrate
    Pop up notification
    LED notification
    forward
    delete auto reply
    mark as read
    and so on....

    I can set the rule to run 24 hours or custom times or only on week days or weekend, etc.

    I can not seem to find any Anroid app with these types of features. I would even be happy if I can get a simple sound alert based on just a sending email address, for starters.

    If anyone can suggest some apps I would really appreciate it.

    One requirement. The App can not work where my corporate email is forwarded to an outside service or server for filtering processing. That is not an option.

    Thank you all.

    I guess an Android app such as I described does not exist? that's to bad. Does anyone know if Jelly Bean includes that feature natively?

    It exists for SMS, not sure for emails. I'm fine with stock. You could try looking at Maildroid or K9 if they have this feature.

    Chanchan05, thanks for the suggestion, I will research them both. The reason I want an alert to notify me based on specific senders or subject matter is so I can filter out the needless emails and only respond immediately from my bosses or when their is a system or service outage. Thanks again.

    Good luck, and I have had a good response from him in the past when I contacted him.

    You might also try eNotify from Verietas software...It has many of the capabilities you've listed:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/...=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5oZXJtZXMuZW5vdGlmeSJd

    There is also a free light version, but it is supported by banner ads...G'luck...Cheers.
