go to the properties of that public folder with outlook. Administration tab, folder assistant. then Add Rule, and follow the wizard from there.

there are only 4 rules there: return to sender, delete, reply or forward. I need any email to make the folder bold and show the number of new emails.

oh thats EASY!!!!!   :)

Just drag the folder from under all public folders to favorites, when you open favorites, just wait a sec and you should see the folders turn bold and numbers right next to them.  Note:  Dragging to favor

I use this... very nifty!

Your welcome!

Wonder what happened to the rest of my note?!?

Oh well... i was just saying that it wont move the public folder, just create a virtual link.

Hello there
i just tryed the above, but the folders only show new emails once they are dropped into the fsavoutites folder.
after that, when new email arrives into the public folder it does not show the number of new messages anymore in the favourites copy of tat folder...
any ideas?

I can say i havent had that issue.  Mine show new messages everytime.

Try having someone post a new email to a public folder as you watch your favorite of that folder and see if the number changes.  If it doesnt, try closing outlook and then reopening it and see if the number changes.  May be an issue with your client, have you tried other clients?
