I created a new folder in my inbox and some rules to receive mails from my team in it.

What I noticed is that I don't receive notifications (the small rectangle in the bottom right of the screen) when I recieve a mail from them.

You can add a notification on your incoming mails within the rule.

  • Open Menu > Tools > Rules...
  • Highlight the rule where you want notification
  • Change rule....
  • Display a window alert

It's seems like it is not the real notification box but this is still a workaround...
