I just obtained my Lumia 920 and was wondering if it's possible to sync multiple folders from the same email account (Exchange account) and view the emails on the same window (as well as receive notification from both folders). The thing is that on my work email account I have a folder where all the mass emails from work go to and I have another folder (main inbox) where the emails directed to me only go to. Right now I get notifiations to the latter but not the former. I know I can have a tile for each folder and problem solved, but I just wanted to know if it was possible to link those two folders and receive emails from both on the same window. I hope this was clear, if not, let me know to try and clarify. Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm interested in this too. With the latest round of updates to the Apple Notification Centre, I could receive an onscreen notification and audible notification when I received a new email to any synced subfolder, which was very handy when I have lots of exchange server-side rules setup to organise mail.
Not only that, it would even display the message even when locked, so I could decide whether to read/reply in full or just ignore it.
Missing this with WP8. being able to pin multiple folders is useful as it gives an easy way to view where new messages have arrived - however, to see the name of the folder requires the mid-sized tile, so mail can take up a lot of room when pinned to the start - plus, notifications (being what they are) means you then have to try and work out which folder has received the new mail.
Not very useable, IMHO.

I'm interested in the same functionality. I've had various BlackBerry phones over the years but I'm considering switching to a different phone based on how it handles email. My email is on Exchange Server and I have about 100 folders and server-side rules to sort my email before I grab it. That means I have new email in all of those folders. I use Outlook 2010 on my PC and use a Search Folder to view today's mail, for example. Can a Windows phone do that sort of thing? It sounds like I'll have 100 tiles to look at, and that probably won't be usable.

I've got lots of server side rules to manage a large volume of email from customers, suppliers and colleagues.
As timetex says my iPhone will alert which ever folder the email comes into.
I've also found the VIP feature extremely useful to further sort the wheat from the chaff.
Losing these features in WP8 is a big retrograde step epecially because the phone is a work productivity tool.
The suggestions aroun additional tiles is really not practical for large volumes of email.
I'm going to keep hunting for an answer :)

- For years I have also been using a lot of rules to sort incoming mail from four different e-mail accounts into a lot of folders in one exchange master e-mail account. It works like a charm on my Microsoft (Office 365) Exchange server. And I also use a couple search folders to highlight the prime mail I want to have at my fingertips (family & received in last 7 days).
- The rules, sorting and syncing works well with Windows Phone 8 (NL 9020).
My WP8 NL 920 does not give any way to display search folders. Worse yet, the newly arrived mail ONLY shows up in WP 8 if it is the odd piece NOT sorted by my rules.
(That is to say that all sorted e-mail goes into the proper folders, but is not flagged as new mail, and the folders are not even shown unless one scrolls through all sub-folders in alphabetic order, & individually opens, downloads & syncs each sub-folder, and then looks to see if anything new is in the folder.)
This "feature" ; - ) kills usability of my WP 8 phone for e-mail as a business tool.
Has anyone found a work-around???
