Outlook XP does not expand folders when emails arrive
Posted on 2009-05-11
I am using an older version of MS Office on a Windows XP Machine.
My Outlook version is 10.2627.2625
In my previous verison of Outlook (2000) when I set up a rule to automatically drop an incoming email into a specific folder, the folder would become bold and automatically expand when an email arrives if it is previously closed.
Now, with this version this does not happen. This has forced me to use my web based email to see all new emails that come in. I have missed a few emails here and there because Outlook does not show me anything was put into a specific folder.
Is there an easy way to fix this without upgrading to a newer version of Outlook (2003 or newer)?
