MS Office/Windows Alt-Tab Issue

When I am at work, I use Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2003. It absolutely drives me nuts that the alt-tab option of switching between programs gives priority to the Office applications. This seems to happen with all of them, but I notice it the most in Outlook. All normal programs behave in such a way that when you minimize its window, it is placed last in the chain of alt-tab switches. Not so with Outlook! As soon as you minimize the program and then hit alt-tab to leave the window you are then looking at, it immediately restores Outlook into view. What?! Microsoft should not be coding their apps to change the behavior of how Windows works for every other application.
