hi clo1,
there is no option to do this
just run outlook minimized ,ie5 is a web browser not a mail client ,
if you want this the easiest is open outlook express
under tools/options
on the general tab for how often to send&recieve just set it to your time and to play a tune so you will hear when new message arrives
and then you could always just make a short cut to outlook in your startup folder then it will start automatically when you boot windows.

Bart, I run ICQ for tech reasons, but for the user who wants pop up notification without their mail client running, I've got something a whole lot better and there's little or no overhead (CPU or memory use) involved!
