Microsoft Outlook is undoubtedly the best Desktop email client available today for Personal Computers. Even though I've multiple mail boxes powered by GMail & Google Aps, I prefer to access work related emails using the Microsoft Outlook(with the help of Google Mail + Outlook POP3/IMAP integration).
The reason for using Outlook is very straight forward. Outlook boosts my productivity several times compared to web clients. In Outlook, Composing mails with complex objects like Images, tables layouts and attaching local files is very easy.
When a new mail arrives, Outlook displays an alert on the bottom right corner of the screen. By default email alerts are displayed only when the email is delivered to the Inbox. If you have created any rules that automatically move your mail to a different folder the desktop alerts won't show.
There is a workaround to beat this limitation of Microsoft Outlook and receive desktop alerts for all new mails irrespective of whether they are landing on Inbox folder or moved to custom folders. Here are the steps to be followed
Step 1: Open Outlook and go to Tools ->Rules and Alerts menu. Click on New Rule.
Step 2: Choose Check messages when they arrive available in the section Start from a blank rule and click on Next button
Step 3: Don't select any condition and click on Next button.
