Public folder notifications

Is there a way for a user in outlook to get a "notification" of new items placed into public folders?

I've tried adding a "favorite" public folder, but it doesn't show "unread count" like the inbox does... just the folder.

I would prefer a solution that I wouldn't have to maintain for all the users. Something that they can set themselves is ideal.

Hi hotcam,

You could use the Folder Assistant, but you'd have tos et that up, not the users.  It's also possible to do this with a bit of VB script code, but each user would have to add that code to their computer.
