I use Outlook 2010 on two different machines.  On one machine, if I open and minimize multople email messages, they stay grouped toether on the taskbar under the Outlook icon.  I I can then click the Outlook icon on the taskbar and close the messages one at a time if needed.

On my other machine, also Win 7, the messages spread out on the taskbar, they do not stay grouped together... annoyoying... what controls this behaviour on the taskbar?   Thanks!

This is actually a really simple fix.  What you speak is actually controlled by the Taskbar Options.  Right-click on the Taskbar and click on properties.  On the first tab, Taskbar, you will see hte option for Taskbar buttons.  You can choose Never combine(space out the application windows as much as possible and continually shrinking the size) or Combine when Taskbar is full(this will do the same as the previously mentioned been when space on the Taskbar becomes maxed out it will then group the windows).
