    Visual Notification of Important Email Only? (MS Office 2000 SR1a)

    Famous last words in Outlook: "There's got to be an easy way to do this..." I want to receive visual notification only from IMPORTANT email or email from specific individuals. I've looked through the rules wizard options and there is no pop up notification option available. It seems to be all or none for pop up notices. There is a "perform an action" and a "run a script" option but I'm not sure how to achieve the desired result. Any clues would be appreciated.

    Turn off the global 'Notify me....'
    In the Rules Wizard select the conditions you want met then:
    Select 'Notify me using a specific message'

    You might also find it handy to use the Organize tools to set up rules and have email color coded based on criteria you choose. For example, I have mail from my manager and director display in red.

    Well, DUH!...I knew there had to be a simple solution. If the option had said notify me using a specific message box, it would have been obvious even to me.

    Thank you.
