Hi Jhajha,

The setup to get notifications for unread mails for IMAP email account is as mentioned below:
1) Go to 'Menu bar', Select 'Mailbox', Click 'New Smart Mailbox'
2) Enter 'Notifications' in the Smart Mailbox name
3) Select 'Message is in Mailbox' option

Notifications-messages-the-Smart-Mailbox

4) Click 'OK'
5) Navigate to 'Menu bar', Click 'Mail', Select 'Preferences'
6) Go to the 'New Message Notifications' tab, select the 'Notifications' value

Settings-for-receiving-notifications-of-mail

7) Click 'OK'

Hi,

Actually, it is possible – here's how:

This worked for me in OS 10.8.3:

In System Preferences > Notifications, disable all Notifications from Mail.

Then in Mail > Preferences > Rules, add a rule the enables notifications for the specific account:

If [any] of the following conditions are met:

[Account] [name of the account you want notifications from]

Perform the following actions:

[Send Notification]

THANK'S
