Windows 7: two problems with Outlook

29 May 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
two problems with Outlook

One on my main rig, desktop, dual core Opteron with nice gaming hardware:

Whenever I send a reply to an email from anyone, to anyone, it does not put that email into the "sent items" folder, but instead into the inbox as the newest incomming email, with the sender as myself, right away. If I create a new email or forward an email, it puts it into the proper sent items folder. Anyone?

One on my laptop (Dell Studio 17):

Whenever I close Outlook, the outlook.exe file stays in memory, and when I start it again, it creates a new outlook.exe, and so on, until, if I don't stop them manually, or never shut down Outlook, there can be many outlook.exe's under processes, each taking up memory (only the active one changes it's memory usage, so I can tell which it is, but all of them take a lot of memory, the old ones take as much as they did when I closed the proggy, and just stick there). The most I've seen before I noticed is after about a week of not shutting down (it's my dads laptop, I just maintain it for him), there were 11 outlook.exe files taking up a total of 650MB of memory. Since there is 4GB of mem, it wasn't noticable, even with a desktop memory meter always running (diff between 35% or 46% is normal, so nothing that would worry me normally).

Thank you, and if there are no answers, could someone point me to a forum where I could find answers?

It's Outlook 2007, I forgot to mention, part of Office Enterprise 2007 Suite.
