I usually keep Outlook 2011 in the background when I'm working away. Then whenever I receive a new email message, Outlook will take the "focus" ... in other words come to the front. Is there a way I can stop this behavior? It is getting very distracting. I'll be working in Photoshop or InDesign, and then juuust as I'm about to click on an item ... BOOM... Outlook fills up the screen and I find myself clicking some random mail message instead. I know Outlook is eager to tell me I have new mail. But I'd rather check it when it's convenient for me.
