    Mutliple Outlook 2003 instance in task tray and task manager


    Every now and then I look down at the task tray ...and whoa!!!! about a dozen instances of Outlook. See attached

    What is causing this?

    It just looks as though you have multiple instances of Outlook open. Probably the way you are accessing your mail each time you open a new email.

    It's likely that Outlook is set to 'hide when minimised' on the task button.

    Actually, Hide When Minimized was not selected.

    But when I did select it, it seemed to have resolved the problem ; now I just see one entry in the task tray, and one process running,

    So thanks for pointing me in exactly the right direction !
