My colleagues use XP and when SP2 was installed their Outlook 2000 New Mail notification stopped working. Despite being annoyed by this, all have learned to live with it.

I'm a bit more fussy - I like my new mail notification, without it i'd read email twice a day (at the start and at the end). I'm not bothered about the full blown message box but I would like the little envelope to appear in the system tray when new mail arrives.

I found a fix here:;en-us;839226

I currently use Windows 2000, but need to format and re-partition my drive, so will be putting XP on. I'd like to know if that fix actually works before I install XP & SP2?
If it doesn't work, does anyone know of any 3rd part Outlook addins that display a new message icon in the system tray?
