Why does Outlook 2007 show three (or more) send/receive tasks when I am only sending/receiving to one account?

I am checking only one POP3 account, but when I send/receive the Send/Receive Progress window shows at least three tasks in the summary sentence at the top (sometimes it has been six tasks).  However, the actual two line list in the lower part of the window shows only two tasks--a sending and a receiving.  I would like to know just what Outlook is doing when I click send/receive.

task is for sending, and the other is for Recieving, for a single account.

Can you please post a screenshot?

Here's a screen shot while it is checking.  When it is done the upper summary no longer refers to three tasks, but rather says, "2 of 2 tasks completed".

Odd... I have 6 pop email accounts, and it shows 12 tasks from start to finish...

2 for each account as I stated above, but the third one is odd....
 
I honestly dont have a clue, but I will certainly try and find one...

Click on the errors tab.... Anything there?

No error messages appear in the error tab.  Here is another screenshot, this time showing a "5 of 6 tasks completed", but with the same two tasks list ed at the bottom.  I discovered that if I cancel all tasks immediately after clicking send/receive, then the next time I click send/receive I come up with the "5 of 6..."  It is as if it is trying to do what I cancelled in addition to another send/receive.  But I still don't know why it is 3 and 6 tasks and not 2 and 4.  The second screenshot shows what add-ins I have running, in case it is relevant.

This issue is really irksome!  Any more insights?  I randomly get all sorts of combinations of task numbers, but the end always says 2 of 2 have been completed.  I subscribe to no feeds, have only this one POP 3 in my group.  Can't find any word on this via searching the internet.  Hope you're still there.

I am, sorry, been out of touch past few days....

I honestly dont have an answer for you.....

Only thing I can think of perhaps, is that it is having a few errors here and there, which causes 1 task, but then it kicks right back to the other 2, and completes them ok...

In the Account Properties>more settings>Advanced.....
Whats teh timeout set for?

Thanks for confirming that it is a weird thing!  Even though the issue still causes inconvenience, at least I know I'm not the only one aware of it.  Do you think service pack 1 for Office might help?
