My question isn't like this one I don't have rules routing my messages. What happens is that Outlook will uncheck my option to show the mail icon. Not sure how or why it does this. How do I make Outlook remember or to leave alone that option?

Have you checked to see if the Windows taskbar is set to not show the notification?

Yes I have it marked as always show. As I said that isn't the issue. The issue is that outlook unsets my setting. – nportelli Jan 6 '10 at 18:30
Have you run all the updates available for Office/Outlook 2007? Do you have any additional add-ons loaded in Outlook? – Mark Jan 7 '10 at 12:22
