The only thing you can do is move the folder out to the same level if you
want to see if new mail arrives.
I can't recal if it did this properly in Outlook Express. If it did, then
they ripped a bit too much from the code and if it didn't then it's not
going to do what you are wanting unless they rewrite or write some
additional code to accomplish it.
If something doesn't work like it did before in OE, they probably ripped it
out of there.Blame the focus groups.
