I have several people in an area just upgraded to XP Pro with Outlook 2002. Intermitantly there is pop up box about "retrieving information from server ??????". I am sure it is trying to do updates or synching free busy schedule etc. This is not happening on everyone's computer who had the upgrade either.

Is there a switch or option to turn off this notification?
Or is it something else entirely and I am missing the Yacht  LOL

The technician who this incedent was sent to says  OUTLOOKS JUST DOES THIS  THERE IS NO FIX.   Leaving my customers hanging with a freezing up outlook.  

Anyone hear of something like this before?

Thank you for your assistance

Your tech is right.  Outlook is just getting info from the server, you will notice it when you are asking Outlook to get a large amount of info such as, opening a big contact database, or opening another users folder.

I don't know if there is an option to hide this pop up box.

Hi.

Mine does that when I'm going through a bad patch on the network. (Like I'm browsing over a phone line, and Outlook is checking for new messages at the time.

useless info, but my 2.4 cents worth.
