Is it not possible to have archived emails sent to your phone? My normal emails that arrive to my inbox show up on my phone just fine, however no matter what IMAP settings I mess with I can't seem to have archived messages sent to my phone.

Did you try to look in the "All Mail Items" folder under the actual "Mail Account" section of the Mail app?

That's where all my "Archived" emails go.

I mean for labels I made, and have filtered emails going to each.

Like I have all my bills emails filtered to a label "bills"

When you set it up did you select Exchange or Gmail? Gmail setup uses IMAP.
Gmail, I can access my labels and the new emails that get forwarded to them. they just don't show up as notifications like normal inbox emails.

Imap is turned on and all my labels are added (in my gmail options)

Have you actually just tried to Gmail app?

They released a native app a bit ago, and it has support for all of this.
