 Detecting unread message(s) in folder and highlighting all folders above

Is there a way in Outlook VBA (possibly with the aid of an addin?), when a
message arrives in a folder, to have its parent folder (and all its parent
folders)
highlighted if there is at least one unread message contained therein?  This
behavior is commonplace in other mail clients and it is very useful.  At a
glance,
regardless of the expanded/contracted status of a folder, you can tell if
there is
an unread message contained somewhere underneath.  Outlook already does
this automatically for a message's immediate parent folder but it stops
there.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
