What is system resource impact of multiple open Outlook windows?
Posted on 2004-08-06
I sometimes find it handy to have multiple instances of Outlook open so that I can see my Inbox, Todo's, and Notes at the same time without having to navigate back and forth several times. When I open additional instances of Outlook after the first, the impact on system resources as shown in Task Manager seems almost negligible. But it's hard for me to believe that it's not having a significant impact somewhere. What resources, if any, are being taxed or consumed by this scenario?
