In Outlook 2007 I'm having an issue where my Favorite Folders aren't showing new messages.

Outlook Favorite Folders and Mail Folders

When I start Outlook, my Mail Folders look like the pane on the left. The second Inbox Favorite folder doesn't show any new messages. But when I expand that account node in the Mail Folders section, suddenly it realizes that there are messages!

Any workarounds?

Would be nice to have the other account under my Mail Folders expanded by default. – M. Dudley Mar 7 '12 at 15:05

I have not figured out any workarounds. I manually expand the account folder every time Outlook starts.
