Intermittent problems with messages not showing up in inbox immediatly

We are having intermittent problems with several of our users Microsoft outlook 2000.  The common complaint is that e-mail will not show up immediately and will only show up when they hit the “New” button for creating an e-mail or the “Send and Receive” button.   It’s as if the client temporarily loses connection with exchange and reconnects when the user hit a button on the outlook interface.  Has anyone heard of this bug or knows of any documentation on this.  We are running Microsoft office 2000 sr-1, service pack 1.  The computers are xp pro service pack 1.
