Never miss important email in Outlook

Sometimes we have lots of things to do and they all depend on a single message. We wait for it, open Outlook every minute just to see that the long-awaited email isn't there yet. The messages you are waiting for have lots of places where they may get lost: several Outlook accounts, all your Inbox folders, and the main villain - Junk mail folder...

Well, not with this doohickey! Wherever the important message comes in Outlook, you can be sure you won't miss it! The alert will come over all other open programs.
