Outlook Creates Quick Launch Icon When New Account is Added.

Hi All,

Whenever we set up a new Outlook account, the program automatically adds a new Outlook Icon to the Quick Launch bar.  The problem is, we already have a Quick Launch Outlook icon coming from the "All Users" profile.  This results in two Outlook icons in the Quick Launch bar.  So, how do I prevent Outlook from adding another shortcut when I set up a new account?  I've narrowed the problem to somewhere in the default profile, possibly a registry key.  Any suggestions?  We're on Win XP with Outlook 2003.

what kind of email account are you setting in outlook ?

Does it create an icon in the quick launch for every email account you create ?

instread of tweaking the registry , why dont you remove the icon in the quick launch to start with after installing outlook because anyway you are going to setup an email account in outlook and you would be getting that ?

Never mind, I got it.  Trial and Error.  On Default User, in ntuser.dat,  Software/Microsoft/Office/11.0/Outlook/Setup/First-Run needs to exist.  If it doesn't, you may get the result I got.  I copied in a value from another profile, and it worked.
