Default Outlook Message Alerts

Hi, i recently installed outlook 2007, but i was having a problem with the email notification stuff. I have my mail set to go to different subfolders in my inbox using rules. When i get emails, i no longer get that taskbar mail icon telling me i have new mail. Ive found out how to get the sound and desktop alert thing going though, through rules.

does anyone know the answer to this problem?

Default Re: Outlook Message Alerts

Is Outlook open all the time? I think Outlook must be open to get the taskbar icon, can anyone confirm this?

Try this:
- Right click the Start button
- Click Properties
- Go to the Taskbar tab
- Click the Customize button
- Make sure "You have new mail" is set to either "Hide when inactive" or "Always show".
