no notice in Inbox of new mail.

Hello,
I am new to Outlook 2010 and am still learning it's little nuances but I am
trying to figure out why I don't get a numeric indication of new mail in
some of my email accounts? Only the default mail account. I have 4 email
accounts. I have my default account of course and everything is fine when
receiving an email to that account. I get a sound and then a numeric
indicator showing how many new messages there are. I have all of the mail
accounts Inboxes in my Favorites column as well as below, but only the main
default account shows a new mail indicator and the quantity. The other
accounts I would have to have been lucky and heard the sound and if nothing
shows up in the mail default account, I then know I have to click on each of
the other inboxes to find out what account the new incoming email went to
and then it shows the new email there in bold text, but again, no indication
of new mail other than having to open the Inbox to that account.
Is there a setting somewhere that I have missed ? And if so, why wouldn't
it be automatically set to show new email since wouldn't most people want a
new mail indication?
Please advise.
Thank you.

A reboot fixed the problem but I still don't get the new mail animation that
it is supposed to do.
