Does anyone know a tool for getting a popup screen in Outlook98 everytime a new message arrives.
I know the standard option in Outlook for getting this, but when more public mailboxes are addded, this is not enough.
Now i only get a popup for my own primary mailbox.
Now we use FM-Mailer but when more users are working with 1 workstation this program fails. (no roaming profiles)

OS workstation: win95
OS server: Win2000
Mailserver: Exchange 5.x

Thanks in advance

Hi Willy, Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

Seems nobody got this one, and honestly, I don't know that much about setting up email programs & what not beyond getting my email.

Perhaps another one of our more technically inclined members can assist you?

I have just tried this and it worked in OL2K:

Private Sub Application_NewMail()
MsgBox "New mail arrived"
End Sub

If you want to program OL you need to get your head round the Outlook object model, which is not easy.
