Question: Don't see option for VIP-only mail notifications

There's supposedly a way to restrict mail notifications on the watch to VIP-only. Articles to this effect show this as an option in the iPhone Watch app. However, I don't see it.


This photo (from an online article) shows the VIP option. My Watch app shows the options for individual accounts only.


Using WatchOS 4.1


Help appreciated!

Answer:
Answer:

The VIP setting applies to messages received via your iCloud mail account from VIP senders.


To customise settings for any other mail accounts:


On your iPhone, in the Watch app, go to: My Watch (tab) > Notifications > Mail > tap on the account.

Thanks Jonathan. Followup question: does it only apply to the iCloud Mail account?


In other words, will non-VIP emails received by non-iCloud email accounts trigger a notification, even if this option is on?

Hi


The option for customising alerts from VIP senders is only available when using iCloud Mail.


To enable iCloud Mail:


On your iPhone, go to: Settings > tap on your name / Apple ID > iCloud - turn on Mail.
