Outlook 2010 New Mail Desktop Alerts Not Working In Windows 7

One thing I noticed when I made the change from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010 was the fact that the little mail icon that used to display when I received an email was no longer displaying in the notification area of the Windows 7 taskbar. I assumed that it was simply a configuration that needed to be made but when I finally got around to looking into this a two days ago I realized that I had Outlook configured properly. After some research I found out that Outlook 2010 does not display desktop alerts, which include the mail icon as well as pop up desktop alerts, properly on Windows 7 x64 computers. After looking around I came up with a solution that ended up costing me $7 but was well worth having the notification icon display when new email is received in Outlook 2010.
