    Hey guys... Ok, this is a real problem... Like, really real...

    I'm new... (that's not the problem, you dolt...), and I have both, my iPhone 4 and my iPad mail accounts setup as exchange accounts, so I receive emails instantly...

    Now, I've set the forum settings to notify me INSTANTLY when someone posts something on a thread that I'm following...

    For those with short attention spans:

    Instant email notification setting + Exchange accounts on iDevice = Mailbox full of notifications...

    Is there anything I can do, to not have my mailbox crowded with notifications from this form, whilst still being instantly notified about a new post? Im talking every possible alternative, mailbox setting tinkering, forum setting tinkering, etc.

    So far, the most elegant solution I've come up with, is this:

    - Create rule on my mailbox to auto archive notification mails from this forum.
    - The iDevices will beep to tell me about new mail anyways
    - I can read the mail on my device (Have not tested)
    - Reply to post...

    Will it work? Help?
