Which aspect, newly arrived Junk mail enabling the New Mail
notification? Yes, that's been reported here many times.
As for your issue of getting a New Mail notification, yet not
finding new mail anywhere, that's not normal for Windows Mail.
I assume you have "Show All Messages" enabled for all folders
(as opposed to "Hide Read Messages"), and "Permanently delete
suspected junk e-mail..." is not enabled. The only other known
cause for odd effects is an overly aggressive antivirus.
