Bend Outlook to my will.

I'm looking for an Add-In for Outlook 2010 that will pop-up a notification when certain, quantity or time based criteria are met.

I receive a number of production/log emails a day from our production websites. I currently have them being sorted based on certain criteria into different folders that organize them by type and severity. In order to see these emails accumulate, I need to keep my entire folder tree expanded and, depending on their frequency, I may need to react more quickly than in other cases.
(For example, it may be the case that 1 issue of type X per hour can be addressed at a later time, but 100 issues of the same type in a couple of minutes clearly indicate an immediate issue.)
So, this means that my folder hierarchy is quite long and I'm frequently checking my email to see if "something is wrong."
I would like an add-in that would pop up an Alert if a particular folder contains more than X messages (ideally in a given time period, but not required.) Before I go off and write this myself, does anyone know if such a thing already exists? Might it already be built in to Outlook?
