Hey paascal,

You got to go to Rules,
Click on Manage Rules and Alerts. Select the rule you have created for which you want to have the alert and then click on change rule.

Go to Edit rule settings, It will open a new window "Rule Wizard", click on next. On the second window scroll down to bottom and check the option "display and Desktop alert". Finish the setup and you are done.

Next time you get a mail from that specific user and it goes to your sub folder, you will get a desktop alert.

You can do this for any rule you have set.

Once you open the Outlook and it connects to the server to download the mails, it will automatically show the number of mails in the sub folder.
Or, do you mean the number of unread mails should show in main folder if the main one is not expanded?

If you are desiring for the second option, you can check out this link. This might be of some help.
