How Do I Get a Specific Sound for a Specific Email Sender?

Can I assign a specific sound to a specific email sender? I am using a iPhone 12 mini + 15.2.1 and I use gmail.

I have a specific email for work and I need to be able to get them as soon as they come in. Right now I have to look every time any email comes in.

    There are a few things you can try. The best you can do in Mail is have different sounds for regular incoming email on each account, and VIP incoming email. In the Settings app, Mail, Notifications, Customize Notifications you can set up a different sound for VIP. So maybe set this one address as a VIP and no others?

    Up one level there is also a setting for Announce Notifications, but I doubt you want to hear each and every email that comes in.

    You can use the Shortcuts app to get some level of personalized notifications. Create an Automation, Personal Automation and set it to Email. Set the sender. Then choose Play Sound as the action, or do any number of other things.
