I think it should be possible to have Outlook in the tray running. How do I configure it to be there?

Hi, mdoland.

I am not clear on what you mean.  When Outlook is open it naturally appears in the system tray, no action required.  Are you saying that is not working on your computer?  Or are you saying that you want to be able to minimize Outlook to the system tray and not have it appear on the task bar?

I want to be able to minimize it so that it is running, but only in the system tray. Since I have many windows open, I want to get rid of as many as possible.

Right-click the Outlook icon in the system tray and select "Hide when minimized"
