Windows 7: Outlook 2010- Downloading Folder Order

Outlook 2010- Downloading Folder Order

I am swapping to Outlook finally... long story.

Anyway, Office 2010 Beta. The new Outlook is very cool.
Sometimes, after it's been open a while, in the right hand side of the bottom taskbar will be a green progress bar with the words "Downloading Folder order". The progress bar is already full and green. The words and progress bar pop up, flash a bit, then go away about every 10 seconds so it's fairly annoying.

Exiting the program and restarting make it stop and I have not figured out yet what makes it start.

Anyone know what Downloading Folder Order means?

Appears to be an IMAP thing? I think it's trying to synch every 10 seconds or so...

I can't seem to find anything about it. Still waiting to see if anyone else has seen this.

Downloading Folder Order Issue in Office 2010 Beta

I too have the issue. I have four IMAP mail accounts in my Office 2010 Beta. If I close Office 2010 and open again the issue does not occur. Even when I open my primary Inbox. But when I open any of the other three Inboxes "Downloading folder order" begins to display at the lower right status bar and apparently does not stop until I close Office 2010 and open it again. This needs to be fixed IMHO.
