    If, however, you don't want a notification when they come, you can set a filter on your email server to mark them as read. They will still come to your phone/work client, they will just be marked as read and will not notify you when they come to your phone.

    Not sure if that works for you, but that's all there is, that I know of.

    So, I guess your email at work is Exchange. I guess there's two ways.

    You can talk to your admins to see if you can setup any rules on the server for you, but that probably won't happen.

    Or, you can try setting up a rule in your Outlook. Set it so that any emails from, or whatever matches those emails to be marked as read. I don't know if this will work or not. I'm not sure if it will mark as read, sync with exchange, and show up as Read on your iPhone or not, but it's worth a try. The only caveat is that outlook would have to be running on your work PC all the time for this to work.

    create a folder under your inbox on outlook. then create a rule that sends all the emails from that sender into that certain folder. It won't ding your inbox, but to manually check you'll have to go to the folder on your iphone to see the email. But it won't jam up or ding ur phone all the time.
