I'm running Outlook 2003 Trial on Windows XP pro.
In the last couple of days it's started doing strange things.
If I'm working on any program other than OL, and if I pause - ie, no keyboard or mouse activity - after a minute or so it switches to Outlook, to the inbox, and shows the messages with the oldest message at the bottom. Menus drop down from the top.
Sometimes even if I'm working, often when composing an email, it suddenly switches to this.
It's as if some unseen hand has control.
I've investigated the usual culprits - ran a virus scan with latest definitions, run 3 different anti-spyware programs. I have AV and anti-spyware running in the background, plus Zonealarm. None of them report any unusual behaviour.
Anybody got any ideas about this?

Hmm, don't know but maybe its set to check for mail every so often and therefore starts itself up?
