How to manage your VIP mailbox on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch — Apple Support


Want to make sure
important emails don’t get lost in the shuffle? Here’s how to create
a VIP mailbox and add VIP contacts. Let’s add
a VIP Smart Mailbox in Mail. To do this, tap Mail. Then navigate
to the Mailboxes screen by tapping the blue arrow
in the upper left corner of your screen. Now you’ll see all
your mailboxes in one place. A mailbox is a folder that you can use
to sort your emails. Let’s tap Edit to find
the VIP Smart Mailbox, and add it. Smart Mailboxes sort mail
that fit a specific criteria. A VIP Smart Mailbox
will collect emails from any contacts
you designate as VIP. Tap to add it, then tap Done. There’s your VIP mailbox. Now let’s add VIP contacts. We’ll show you two ways
to add them. Let’s start here in Mailboxes. Just tap VIP, then tap Add VIP. Scroll down to the contact
you want to add, then tap their name. You can only add a contact
if it has an email address associated with it. You can also manage alerts
by tapping VIP alerts, and making adjustments
in Notifications settings. Alerts can help
get your attention if you’re expecting
something important. Now let’s add a VIP contact
directly from an email. Go back to your inbox
by tapping the blue arrow in the upper left corner. Then tap the inbox where you’d
like to search for an email, and tap the email from
the contact you’d like to add. Tap the contact’s name
or email address in the From field,
then scroll and tap Add to VIP. You can also remove
VIPs from here within their contact card
in the future. Next tap Done, and the contact
has been added to VIPs. Now it’ll be easy
to spot messages from your
most important contacts. For more helpful tips like this, subscribe to the

  1. Nice but we really need to comeback the manual control of display brightness in the setting for ios 12 soon please

  2. Greetings, is it possible to delete an Icloud email account from an Ipad, without knowing the password?
    Let's say I restore the Ipad, will the email account with which this device was registered be deleted or will only the Icloud account that was open on the Ipad be deleted?
    That is, I want to permanently delete the Icloud email account and create a new one. Is it possible to do this, without knowing the password?
    Thanks.

  3. what if there's someone you get emails from on two separate email addresses but you only want vip notifications if they send sth to one of the addresses?
