Notification envelope not showing when rule moves mail to other folder

I don't get the notification envelope when I get an e-mail that gets moved from the Inbox to an e-mail folder "next to" the Inbox by an Outlook rule.  When I look at my Outlook screen, it does show that folder in bold and the count of new e-mails, but the problem is that unless I keep maximizing the window to check, I don't know when a new e-mail arrives.

This is my rule:
"Apply this rule after message arrives from (address of sender) move it to the ECode folder."

ECode is a folder at the same level in my Mailbox as the Inbox folder.  I don't want a desktop alert, just the envelope I get with e-mail that gets delivered anywhere else.

Any ideas?  I tried doing the Detect and Repair, created a new folder to test with and nothing.  

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately this is by design so to speak...I know you said you didn't want the desktop alert, but this article explains a way to create a rule that will do it; or play a sound; or something which would be better than having to expand the folder to look for new messages =)

So, no way of having the envelope show up?  I wonder why it worked in previous versions but not now.  I had tried a method similar to the one in the link, but that does not solve my problem.  I can't have the desktop alert and my computer at work has the sound turned off, so that won't work either.  Thanks anyway, and if anyone else knows of a way, let me know.
It's definitely possible...using the same procedure but calling a script (instead of playing a sound or displaying the alert) - and that script programmatically triggering the envelope icon. Just haven't figured out how to do that yet....I'll keep working on it.
