New mail on Foucs or Click

I have one XP client using outlook 2000, connecting to an Exchange 2000 server. The client will show new mail when the user clicks on a folder within his outlook, or when he closes the outlook program, all of a sudden his inbox will pop up a bunch of new messages, that weren't showing previously. This happens all the time, but just on this particular computer. Has anyone seen anything like this? I've looked at all kinds of settings, and cant see why the Outlook client would act like this.
Any suggestions?

sounds like a refresh problem on the computer.. are the messages just there or do you see them download?

they just pop into the inbox folder. If he closes outlook, the inbox folder will quickly show the new messages. Upon reopening Outlook the messages are there.
I am thinking the same thing about refresh, almost like Outlook isnt the active window or something. But he can click on File items and such with no real change. BUT when he clicks on a folder, boom, there are a bunch of new messages there!
thanks for your help.......

That led me in the right direction. I think the user turned on the Firewall thats built into XP.
