    I'm not exactly sure which forum I should ask this question because I'm not sure which piece of info is pertinent to the problem. Our work email is setup through Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync. My boss uses an S6 which is running Nougat. She would like to be notified by a sound when she receives an email from certain individuals, not all emails from everyone that emails her. Is that possible? I tried setting up the individuals as VIPs but that didn't work. Thanks!

    No, Android doesn't have individual email notifications. (Not even Thunderbird, which I have running on my desktop, does. Outlook does? Or she just came up with a wish-for-feature that no program has?)

    You could probably use something like "LightFlow" for custom sounds.
    - Keep the email notifications turned on, but set them for no sound.
    - Use Lightflow to filter on the notification text to play sounds for the desired users.

    Thank you for the suggestion. Didn't have a 3rd party app in my mind. Our IT folks are pretty strict but since my boss is a senior person, it might require a conversation with them. Thanks again.
