Are there a lot of mails in your inbox, did you wait long enough for it to download all messages? Have a look at the networking tab of your task manager, can you see a steady network load there? (providing you don't have any other bandwith consuming programs running)

The (1B) means that it's updating, one byte. This is weird.

Can you try starting Outlook with disabled cached exchange mode?
