Windows 7: IMAP Mail Notifications

IMAP Mail Notifications

I am trying to figure out something with my MS Outlook client - it will not show a notification at the bottom of my screen when new mail comes using an IMAP account, but when using a POP or Exchange account, it does. Why will it not show any new mail notifications for IMAP account users?

I am using MS Outlook 2010.
