I’m using server-side Sieve scripts to filter incoming mail and move some of them to a subfoloder outside the IMAP Inbox hierarchy. Thus, these mails are not part of my “Inbox”. Because of that, I don’t expect a “new mail” notification if such mail arrives, which is precisely the point: they are low priority mail. Using my desktop clients like KMail and Thunderbird I’ll still notices them (they are marked as unread), but neither of these clients show a new mail notification. However, my phone still pings and shows a notification, including flashing led, when such new mail arrives. This is unwanted.
- IMAP Email account set up on mobile.
- A folder outside the Inbox hierarchy.
- Some server-side filtering, like Sieve scripts
E.g, the following Sieve script:
if address :localpart :is “to” “user+lowprio”
fileinto :create “Low priority email”;
- Send mail to your own account, which is automatically placed in a folder outside Inbox, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org.
No notification, but blissful tranquility, just like desktop clients.
A new mail notification pops up.
