New email messages not appearing in inbox correctly



  • 1. Mailbox Size Properties in Outlook
    I am trying to determine the total size of a mailbox and see where the majority of the e-mail is. After cleaning out the mail (went from 3 GB to 250 MB) I check the properties of the mailbox in Outlook (right click-properties - folder size). The size box appears with a total size of 250 MB but when I look at what is listed by each folder (sent, deleted, ect..) it is 100 MB smaller. I don't know where else to check for messages, any ideas? Thanks

New email messages not appearing in inbox correctly

Postby Um9iIFBpc2FuaQ » Thu, 15 Nov 2007 17:18:04 GMT

Am using Outlook Office Ultimate 2007.  About a week ago, I noticed that 
although I receive new email (the send/receive progress is visible in the 
toolbar at the bottom of the screen), the new messages no longer appear in my 
inbox until I either close and restart Outlook or open a folder then go back 
to my inbox.   Any idea what might be causing this or how to fix it?

1.Email in Inbox subfolders does not appear in total INBOX new mail

Since upgrading to Outlook 2003 SP1 - I no longer can readily see when new 
mail is routed to subfolder of my Inbox (using Rules)

I inadvertently moved one folder inside of another and did not know I had a 
dozen message waiting!  Embarrassing!

Is there a setting in 2003 to pass the new mail info up thru the folder 

2.Inbox displays new mail message but nothing new appears in Inbox


I've got a some asking me for help because their Inbox shows the number 11 
in bright blue next to its title which usually means the person has 11 new 
unread mails.  Thing is though when the go into the inbox to read these 
message nothing new has turned up.  I've checked that there not appearing in 
subfolders in the inbox and that it's not old mail turning up further down 
the list before more new e-mail that has been read.  He's been able to 
recieve individual messages from me that i sent that did come through top his 
inbox and so we thought it was just an Outlook glitch but it has happened 
again now today after we got rid of the number yesterday by just right 
clicking on the inbox and selecting 'mark all as read'.  He's a bit worried 
now though and would like a fix so would appreciate any thoughts anyone has.



3.New messages do not immeadiatly appear in OL2000 inbox

My new messages do not pop into the inbox until I click onto another message 
already in the inbox. There is no notification that a new message has arrived 
and no indication of unread messages in the inbox. The only way to check for 
new messages is to highlight an already existing message in the inbox which 
makes the new messages pop into the inbox.
Using Outlook 2K. I've recreated the profile and even made a profile for a 
different user on this machine and recreated the problem.


4.New messages not appearing in Inbox

My new Outlook 2007 is working fine apart from one snag.  Most of the time my 
Outlook is showing the Inbox and when new emails arrive they don't intially 
appear there.

I can see from the Inbox link in Favourite Folders that new emails have 
arrived and then I have to click on another folder before returning to the 
Inbox before they show up.  Also, no new mail notification envelope is 
appearing in the task bar, and no new mail sound is occurring either.  Even 
though my options are set to do this.

can anyone help please?
