    Hi there,

    I'd like to make one, very important e-mail to bypass mute mode on my phone.

    I receive alerts in e-mail about my car being stolen/moved out of its place, and I already set a custom sound and notification stlye to it (whitin GMAIL app, using labels and filters), and it's all nice, but it does not work when my phone is muted. This e-mail would be important and I'd want it to wake me up even in the night if my car is being stolen.

    Is there any way, any app, any setting that can make these emails (from one specific sender) bypass silenced mode?

    Thanks for the advice and the tipps!

    Does the system you are using in your car have the ability to send text messages to your phone? If it does, there is a very elegant solution.

    Hi,
    unfortunately no, that would be too costly.

    Have you tried setting the source email as your only priority email. Once you do that, you can limit notifications in the stock OEM email app to your priority senders only.

    I can make one e-mail stand out, that's not the issue. I would like it to ignore that my phone is muted and notify me with sound anyway. :/
