View Full Version : Outlook 2007 - organising Inbox

24-07-2008, 01:19 PM
Greeting all

I have updated from outlook 2003 to 2007 and it all went fine

However there is one thing that bugs the crap out of me

I have loads of rules on my inbox which directs mail to various subfolders, however when mail arrives and goes to a subfolder the little mail icon doesn't appear in the system tray, if the mail is not redirected and stays in the inbox then a mail icon is put in the system tray

From what i have read that is normal for Outlook 2007 (and supposedly 2003), however on my old 2003 I got the mail icon, no matter where the mail eneded up

And yes the little check box in Mailoptions --> advanced mail options --> is ticked

So my question is

How do you organise your inbox?

I am looking at removing my current system of folders and rules and instead using search folders (ie one search folder for each customer)

anyone else got any useful suggestions of how to do this.
