I have several rules which mark items as read and then send them to a specific folder. Nearly all of these folders are nested within one parent folder.
The issue is that usually when I get one of these messages, Outlook will expand the parent folder. I have no need for this sort of notification. The entire point of me automatically marking messages as read is that I don't need to know about them.
Can I stop Outlook from auto-expanding folders when they get new mail? I get dozens of these messages a day, and it's frustrating to constantly close this folder only to have it reopen minutes later.
I'm using Outlook 2010.
