I have a created folder for my scans that I carry out at work. Now the folder updates fine it shows the unread count but this seems to be completely separate from the main inbox. The problem with this is that the message received icon does not show on the main outlook icon. so if my outlook is minimised for any reason I do not know whether my scan was received without navigating to the folder itself.
is there any way in which I can get unread messages in the created folder to make the little message icon appear on my taskbar outlook icon? like so:
[Update] This is also the case with subfolders created within the Inbox folder. I also tried ticking a box in properties which meant that an "Item Received Alert" appeared but it was not the right alert, I still need to open outlook from the taskbar to check my mail was received.
