If you are running Outlook 97/2K the exchange server will know that the client is connect and deliver the mail instantly to the local user whether its a personal folder or the users exchange mailbox. I am assuming that it is connected to the Exchange server with the exchange server service and not pop3 to imap. If it's pop3 or imap this is configured in the account settings.

Our users are set up w/ .pst files in their Outlook profiles (i.e. no mail resides on the server). Our users are currently running Outlook 2000 pro and Outlook XP pro. Server and client SPs are up to date. Is there a way to specify the amount of time the Outlook client queries the server for new mail messages? I know I can bring in new mail messages by hitting the send and receive button. But is these a way to make the client query the server like every 2min. For new mail messages? Any enlightenment is welcomed... Thanks... Technically, Michael K.
