New message notification question

I recently made a folder and assigned a rule that would put messages from a certain user into that folder titled "Firstname Lastname". However, when I get a message from that user I don't get a popup notification or a new message taskbar icon, so I can't see immediately that the message has arrived. Is there a way to enable notifications for messages from this user under that folder?

Also, is there a quick and easy way to just create a folder for each new contact without manually assigning rules to each one? I think I've seen that done before.

Thanks,
Igor

Well doesnt email first go into your inbox (sort off) then rules get applied and item moved?
Have u got the notification displaying now for normal emails? If not, have a look at Tools/Options/Email Options (in preferences tab)/Advanced Email Options and look in 2nd part - when new items arrive

regarding folder, I dont know of any quick way, unless some vba was written to automate it

Hi igor92128,

For the first part of your question, no, the desktop alert works on email arriving during a scheduled send and recieve to the default inbox. If you use a rule to deliver email to a folder you will not get the alert.

rockiroads is correct on the second part.

cheers,

Thanks for the clarificatim Frankco. I thought that might be the case since when u look in options, it does say to the default inbox.

Would writing your own macro help here?

Adding a macro in vba window (ThisOutlookSession module)

Private Sub Application_NewMail()
    MsgBox "You have New Mail"
End Sub
