Windows 7: MS Office Outlook Hotmail Connector updates

MS Office Outlook Hotmail Connector updates

How do MS Office Outlook Hotmail Connector updates (and notifications) work?

When i opened Outlook 2010 on my primary PC a day or two ago a message popped up saying i needed a new version.
I accepted and updated the version - no problems.
From what i found a new version was recently released.

Today I started Outlook 2010 on my Test/Backup PC to update this, and I don't get the "New Version popup".

It seems the Hotmail connector does not get updated with "normal" Windows updates.
I do have MS updates set to notify me of updates, but i choose when to download and install.
All options are checked for recommended, optional, etc.

It looks like Outlook may or may not notify about an update needed.
Secunia PSI (v2) doesn't list the Hotmail connector, so no help there.

I'm guessing i can download the latest version and install it.
I'd really like a reliable way to know when a new version is available and get a notification.

Here's the info for my latest version...

I found an MS post and the new version available popup in Outlook is the way this update is handled.

On my Test box i don't have an automatic send/receive.
A send/receive is needed to get the New Version message.
I did a manual send/receive and got the New Version message.
