rberq Posted September 3, 2008 Report Share Posted September 3, 2008 I may be typing along rapidly in a Microsoft Word document, when Outlook pops up a box saying "New mail has arrived. Would you like to read it now?" At that point, most of my typing is ignored because focus is now on the pop-up. If I happen to type a letter Y or N, the pop-up accepts it and either brings up the email (Y) or closes the pop-up (N). I have a similar situation with ME. A macro is busily tabbing from field to field and typing data into a form, when up pops the Outlook box and steals focus and steals all the keystrokes until either Y or N happens to occur, and then if it is Y the email is displayed. In any case, the macro application is totally disrupted. Short of disabling the Outlook feature, can anyone suggest a way around this?
