Does Outlook 2000 allow you to select the option for notification "when new mail arrives" without having the same notification pop up when net changes takes place such as someone adding a new calendar item on the network.  Outlook does not appear to differentiate between the two types of mail/items.

You could create a rule that notifies you with a specific message when you receive mail from specific person(s).  This way you could disable the generic popup and only receive notification when you really want it.  (Mail icon in systray will always show up regardless.)

Thank you, Neo_mvps that might work for some of the situations.  Will that work to determine the difference between someone sending me a calendar change and the same person sending an email who has a rule set to pop up if they send an email? I can't see a rule for items other than mail. Also, how would I get notification of external mail if the generic option is turned off?

Thanks for your help - I will continue playing with the rules.

Q1] I don't think it will.  Of course I can't verify because the #netfolder# messsage is processed/moved before I can examine it.

Q2] A rule would have to be created.

Come to think of it.  Do you have Outlook 2000?  If yes, you could write a macro that could monitor the Inbox and only give you a popup when the subject does have the word Netfolders in it.  (This is a much better solution that using the rules wizard.)

I'll give the macro a try.  Sounds like that would work.

Thanks...
