Hi,

Am I in the correct forum? (If not, please redirect me to the right place.)

I have this problem...

I have Windows 2000, Outlook 2003...

The Outlook button disappears from the Task Bar when I minimize it. It is still running -- have the small Outlook icon in the processes tray, and I receive incoming email notification -- but to maximize Outlook again, I have to re-launch.

Any ideas?
Thanks!!

I found this fix and have no way to test it, so perhaps the poster was joking. But I figured that if it was a real fix, I should post it to you, just in case.

Is there an Outlook icon in the tray? If so, perhaps you can right-click on it and disable the "hide when minimized" feature. If there is no such feature, or if there is no Outlook icon in the tray, please forgive me for believing a spamming idiot. :thumbsup:

Edited to add: I found identical information in This newsletter - just scroll down to "Quiz Answer" and it gives the same information.

Oh brother, Herk.

I feel like such a novice. Yes, that worked... I can't believe I overlooked such a simple fix! *Hits forehead with palm*

Thanks very, very much...
