Keep outlook off taskbar

I got this question today from a user, he wants outlook only to appear in his notification area, and not on the taskbar when open.  It is already unpinned, but as all apps do as far as I know, once open, they appear on the taskbar.  Is there a way to override this?  His idea is it's redundant and would allow him more space for other tasks.  I told him he can't, but he got me to thinking maybe it can be done.  Anyways, any ideas?

You can hide Outlook from the taskbar while it is minimized by right clicking the System Tray Outlook icon and selecting "Hide When Minimized."

Open Outlook
Click on the small arrow besides the clock
Click on the link named "Customize"
Besides microsoft outlook select "Show icons and notification'
Now you will see an icon for outlook in the system tray
right click the outlook icon on the system tray and select the option named" hide when minimized"
then try to minimize Outlook.
And its done. :-)

But I don't ever want it to appear on the taskbar.  What you guys are saying only hides it when its minimized.
