Tip of the Day: Get Notified When the Email Reply You're Waiting for Arrives

Master your iPhone in one minute a day: Sign up here to get our FREE Tip of the Day delivered right to your inbox.

Stop checking your inbox every five minutes for that reply to the email you sent. Enable reply notifications instead so you receive an alert whenever a reply in an important email thread arrives.

There are two ways to do this. First, in your inbox, swipe left on a message and tap more. Next, tap Notify Me. Or, while composing an email, tap the bell icon in the subject line field and then tap Notify Me. 

  

You will now receive a notification when the reply hits your inbox. Emails with reply notifications enabled will have a bell icon to their left in your inbox.
