Make envelope icon disappear in Outlook 2007

I have my mobile phone synced with my Exchange server. When an email comes and I'm on the road, I read it and it is marked as read. When I get back to my computer, the envelope icon displays in the task bar, even though I have no new unread messages. If I right click the envelope, I can choose the option "hide this envelope", but then it doesn't show up even if I get new mail. The only way I can make the envelope go away is to close Outlook.

"You can also use the Ctrl+Enter keyboard hotkey in the main Outlook window.

Its primary function is to mark the selected messages as read. As a side-effect, it will also remove the envelope icon."
