    I have Outlook 2007 and I have been checking everywhere to figure out how to set the little windows notification that pops up in the bottom right beside the system tray for new mail. Not the system tray envelope icon. I know it works when using a pop account. I have my gmail set up through IMAP and I can't seem to get the notification. I figured out it out with a rule for the new message envelope in the system tray but not the actual window that shows who the message is from and subject.

    Can anyone Help

    Appreciate the feedback,

    I really thought there was a way. Has anyone had any luck with this? I have searched some forums but I have not found an answer. Has anyone been able to do this?

    The article I posted is pretty clear. The functionality just doesn't exist.

    I have seen people that said on forums that they got it work with the gmail imap account. They just didn't provide a solution. Any thoughts?

    colemac,

    Perhaps the other forums were referring to setting up a New Item Alert using Outlook's Rules and Alerts. It's different (see image below) than the one mentioned in the link provided by DoubleHelix, but it might work for you.

    In Outlook go to Tools > Rules and Alerts > New Rule

    Select the following options:
    Check messages when they arrive
    through the specified account {click link and select IMAP account}
    display a specific message in the New Item Alert window {click link and enter desired alert message}

    No not exactly. I know how to set up the new alerts. Its actually the window that pops up in the bottom right not the system tray but just a rectangle box with the new message. Outlook 2003 and 2007 have it. 2002 did not.

    Anyone have any feedback?
