    I'm working on an application where the javascript code in the web browser
    keeps polling the server for new messages through Ajax and web services. How
    do I display a popup baloon from the notification area on the taskbar, just
    like what Outlook Web does?

    You would have to install an ActiveX control on the user's machine. That
    functionality is not accessible from a browser.

    This is off-topic in an asp group. Client-side issues are more typically
    discussed in the scripting groups (microsoft.public.scripting.jscript).
    ASP is server-side functionality.
