Outlook 2010 will not show notification envelope for IMAP accounts (which is a horrible bug IMO but that's the reality right now), are there any good add-ons that would "fix" this? I'm primarily after something that could add an envelope in the sys tray as Outlook 2007 used to do out of the box.

Mail Alert provides this functionality although it's not free.
