Doesn't work for me
I have 2 exchange accounts, 1 mobileme, 2 gmail accounts. None of them trigger the alerts in MailTones. I've had two other people enter the forwarding copy info in my accounts. All three of us could not have mis-typed the forwarding address. The app just never triggers for any incoming mail.

Mail forwarding? No way
We do not read your emails at our server. We have to take your word for it? If I knew that I had to forward a copy of my email to your servers for this app to work I wouldnt have bought this.

Repeat alerts
Good app with decent features. I really like the ability to group a domain. And direct access to the contacts list. But without repeat alerts for truly important emails that cannot wait it isn't a serious player. Still it's nice to see apps like this even if it requires forwarding.

Love it!
This app circumvented the low volume on iPhone4. Perfect sounds for the workplace and loud enough that it wakes me up, especially great since the new sounds update! I love this app!

Does what I need
Exactly what I wanted, a way to hear when email from certain people arrives. Don't know why this isn't part of iOS already, but until that day I'm glad to have this. I set all other emails to silent and assigned tones to my husband, my mom, my MIL and so on. Perfect for reducing distractions. I would like more and varying tones, but works fine otherwise. And don't rate them low just because you have to forward your mail! They say so right in the description!

Latest Update = Perfection!
Wow! Talk about listening to your customers! I asked for more sounds on the quiet end of the spectrum and did they deliver or what??? Literally tripled the number of sounds and I can use all in a work setting - THANKS for listening! ****************** Had to drop to two stars, expected additional sounds by now - lack of variety significantly reduces the usefulness of this app. *************** It really needs more variation in sounds, especially of the medium decibel variety. I use this to distinguish between work and personal emails (and using Google Voice, vm's and sms's ) - I really think the lack of variety significantly diminishes the value of the app. I'd give it a 3 for that reason but I don't want to hurt the sales so I hope the dev can add more sounds - they don't even need to be super high quality, just something to help distinguish between different types of emails. In terms of responsiveness for the notification, it usually comes through within a minute or less - exactly what I need, and the app is designed well too. Thanks for making such a great product.
