    Email Notification pops under (2002 SP2)

    I currently have Office XP installed on a Windows XP Pro machine. I am having a problem with Outlook new mail message notifications. Outlook is running in Corporate/Workgroup mode. When I receive a new mail message, the notification pop-up pops up behind whatever I'm working in. Is this normal? Any suggestions to make it pop in FRONT of what I'm working on?

    Hi Becky,

    Several people have complained about this in the Microsoft Newsgroups, without getting a definitive answer. You might use TweakUI to check if you have set "Prevent applications from stealing focus" (it is in the General section, under Focus).

    TweakUI is a free utility from Microsoft; the XP version can be downloaded here.

    I did download TweakUI and it still happened with "Prevent applications from stealing focus" on. Looks like a bug we get to live with for awhile!

    Thanks for the reply.
