New mail indicator on incoming IMAP marked as junk


B

Has anyone ever seen this issue (I am using Outlook 2003): I have an IMAP
account which receives a lot of spam. I have my junk mail filter set to
Low, and I checked the box for "Permanently delete suspected junk instead of
moving to junk mail folder."

As new spam arrives to the IMAP account's inbox, it gets automatically
deleted (thanks junk mail filter). The problem is that Outlook still shows
me the new mail indicator on my system tray, as well as sounding a new mail
notification. When I go to check my Outlook, I obviously find no new mail,
just the deleted spam in the IMAP inbox.

Are there any workarounds or solutions to this issue?

I don't think so.

I don't think so.

That's what I suspected after looking all through the settings, but I just
wanted to double check. How about Outlook 2007, do you know if the same
issue happens there?

If I have the chance, I'll check it out.
