    It is correct, you won't get a tone for subfolders. This is a popular suggestion, though, you may see it in the future.

    have you linked your inboxes yet?

    Try pinning the folder to the start screen, should work then.

    Don't mean to bring up a old threat but did not want to start a new one ;)

    What's going on with this feature?!?!

    I have 6 subfolders. Do I really have to pin all of them to start and clutter my screen with mail folders....?

    I really hope this has been addressed and I'm just overlooking it...

    yes and I also want this feature sincerely.

    I just want the emails that go to the sub-folders(which is done automatically by the outlook rules) will be showed and alerted in the "linked inbox".

    At least there should be an option to allow it.

    Even if you pin, won't show up on lockscreen

    Ugh I love my WP7, but another added to the list of stuff that worked great in WinMo6.0-6.1 and isn't included in WP. Give you a fancier sandwich but keep the pickles.
