    Make Outlook minimize to your system tray

    I use outlook all the time at work and really got sick of having it hang out on the task bar when I am not using it. Here is a registry edit that will make Outlook run in the system tray when it's minimized.

    Remember to back up your registry before you modify it, in case something goes wrong.

    Open the run command type “regedit” press enter

    Under “My Computer” on the left expand the folder list to the following directory HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    \Software
    \Microsoft
    \Office
    \10.0
    \Outlook
    \Preferences
    Right click on a open area and select NEW DWORD VALUE
    Name it “MinToTray”
    Right click on your new dword and select MODIFY
    Set the value data to 1
    Click OK
    Go to FILE then EXIT
    Start Outlook you should see an Outlook icon in your system tray.

    but when you're using outlook 2003 there's a simpler method....

    right click the outlook icon... then select hide when minimize.

    Thanks for the tip, I haven't gotten to use Outlook 2003 yet.
