Outlook and Outlook express do not have this feature, so is not possible by default.

However, there are programs you can get that will sit in the tray, and allow you to sellect and open program, assign it an icon, then then send it to the tray (it should save the details, so you pick it from a list the next time).

However, I don't know the names or the locations of such apps.

Try download.com and tucows.com

A good program for what you want to do is "Mail Washer" it will sit in the system tray and check for mail every 10 minutes by default. but you can set this for whatever time you like.
Mailwasher also has some other benfits.
The main one being that you can see your mail before you download it and delete any suspicious ones before they get to your PC.

Well worth getting.
