Default [Q] iphone VIP feature for Android

I am sure this topic has been raised before but I just cant find anything. Anyone that has had an iphone before may be aware of the VIP feature which is nicely intergrated with the mail app. If a contact is a VIP the email is presented as a popup on the lock and home screen. I have been looking high and low for something like this, either in a mail app that has exchange active sync capabilities or an secondary app, for example a great example of such an app is popup notifier (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ificationslite) but its filtering simply sucks. In other words its all or nothing you can not nominate contacts to see notifications from.

Does anyone know of such an app, free or otherwise its something that I live by.
