    help on update window in "background"

    Hello, I'm working on a simple MAPI application form-based. In the form there's a MSFlexGrid which is updated every time a timer fires a "messages download" request to show newincoming messages. The problem is that when this happen, my MAPI application becomes the active app, so for example if I'm working with another app, when the timer calls MAPI to download messages, the process of download starts and then the application I was using is no more active, and the "focus" passes to the MAPI application (until I select again the application I was using).

    How can I do the download in "backgroud"?

    Thank you for any hint
