Outlook Notification Problems

So, I have Microsoft Outlook 2010 on this computer, and I'm using it with Gmail. The desktop notifications for new mail never show up -- is this a common problem?

The workaround for this is to create a rule within outlook for all mail(for the specified email account) and then in the advanced options for the rule you can specify "display a desktop alert" and "play a sound."
