We're using exchange server 2003.  The problem is that desktop alerts about new mail sometimes don't show up until WAY after the email arrived.  Totally defeats the purpose of a desktop alert.  Any ideas?

Greetings, Zach_Pearce.

I remember reading somewhere, can't find where that was right now, that desktop alert is tied to how busy the computer is at the time.  If it's busy, then Outlook holds up the alert.  The idea being that most folks would be disctracted by alerts appearing while they are busy typing something.  I cannot find any reference in any of my Outlook material to a setting that controls this.

Cheers!

Please refund the points.  I have decided that this is a bug with outlook and that there is no obvious, or even semi-obvious solution.

I don't believe there is a solution and that's a valid answer.
