    I'm sorry but the first sentence was a reply to ectech, the second one to you. I don't use the Windows Essential Live mail, but the Mail App, and the folder organization works in a similar way, with "rules".
    I went and tested the Mail App using every configuration possible to invoke notification's using folders. All attempts were unsuccessful. I believe the Mail App does not yet support such a feature. You could try using another application.

    So it wasn't my issue but a lack from Microsoft, I understand! Thank you very much.

    Notifications for folders are working!


    Guys, just pin the folders you like to Start Screen and you will receive notifications. For example, you can pin "All Mail" folder and you will receive notifications for ALL emails received.

    Thank you for the reply, Cosiac; I knew this "solution" but it would be a mess to create several tiles for every folder of my Mail, because I have not any "All Mail" folder. If you meant the Inbox, it will show only the un-sorted mails, exactly the opposite of what I need.

    All Mail folder


    I have "All Mail" folder in my Gmail account. All the messages received in my account are there, no matter in which folder they go after.

    I use a Live account, and unfortunately I don't have that folder (I wonder why Microsoft doesn't think to the easiest things..).
