Outlook2000 mail not sent

For full MAPI support I understand Outlook needs to be installed in corporate/workgroup mode instead of Internet only mode.  Did that on an NT server machine.  
Server console is used to send email via 3rd party app using MAPI.  Console user has local server admin rights.
Everything is in a LAN environment so no 'work off-line' settings are present.
Services were setup for Internet mail, addres book and personal folders.
When using Outlook messages are composed and sent just fine.
When Outlook is not running and a message is sent via MAPI it sits in the Outlook outbox.

Problem: When 3rd party app sends a message via MAPI when Outlook is not open the mail sits in the Outlook outbox until Outlook is opened.  Once Outlook is open the message is sent.  I need the mail to be sent without having to open Outlook and keeping it on screen or even minimized.  It worked with Outlook98 but I have other needs for Outlook2000.  I did not see anything in Office service pack regarding this.  I'm setting up a test server to duplicate the problem and try a few things away from the production systems.

What connection type are you using for your Internet mail services? You might need to run something that keeps the MAPI Spooler (MAPISP32) running so that mail keeps getting sent automatically

The Internet mail service connection tab shows 'connect using LAN'.  Delivery is set to personal folders and Internet mail.

I like the idea of keeping the spooler running, any idea how to do that?

A potentially dumb idea would be to use OutLock:

Alternately, you could try using MailAlert:
