  •  Clever! I don't know how to route e-mail. I (5+ / 0-)

    wish I could get an alert on my cell the instant a certain local beer company sends me invitations to their tastings.  I'm always too late RSVPing.  They max out in minutes, so I assume this is what others are doing.  Is it possible?  How do I do it?

      Maybe someone with a smart phone can help you.

      However, I read a recent essay about how the author set his e-mail on his smart phone to "pull" rather than "push," meaning that he gets fresh e-mails when he refreshes his in-box (pull) instead of them arriving as they are sent (push).  He liked having more control over when he got e-mail -- he was less distracted.

      Might your phone be in "pull" rather than "push" mode?  Might changing the setting improve the speed at which you receive them?

      There's tons of "how-to" regarding Outlook on the net. It's probably the most popular piece of software Microsoft makes that isn't forced down your throat.

      I don't believe you can assign a particular alert to any particular email but you can assign an alert for when new mail arrives. Anyway, the truth is out there. :)
