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.

One of the most popular ones is ICQ (www.icq.com)

You’ve updated all your end user’s email signatures. Hooray! But guess what? They’re playing around with the HTML, adding stupid taglines and ruining the imagery. Find out how you can save your signatures from end users today.

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!
