I was hoping that some kind soul would have an answer to this problem. I am new to Windows Live Mail, and Windows 7, so I hope I havenít overlooked anything obvious.
When I receive an email message, I hear the "bee-do" sound when it arrives. However, the inbox folders which I have set-up, and linked to message rules, do not automatically expand to show the presence of a new message. Nor do I get a "(1)" beside "unread email", or "unread from contacts" at the top.
I do get the ď(1)Ē after I expand the relevant folder manually. But if they are collapsed, and if I don't hear the sound, I often miss the email. Moreover, when I do go to the folder that contains the email, it does not go to the unread message automatically Ė the last message I read in that folder is still highlighted. That would seem to be related, but Iím not sure how to fix it.
I have, of course, checked the box "automatically display folders with unread messages" under tools>options
TIA for any suggestions,
