    Outlook as a W2K Service (OL 2000 SR1a)

    I did a search on the Outlook forum (used several different keyword options, etc) but couldn't find any mention of this. I'm running W2K SP2 and have recently decided to start using OL2000 as my email client. I mistakenly choose Corporate Workgroup as the setup, so I used the option to change it to Internet Email only.

    I can't figure out if my problem is a 'feature' or a bug. After I exit Outlook, Task Manager shows that Outlook.exe is still running as a service using a whopping 25M of physical memory. Is this normal behavior for Outlook on W2K, or is something setup incorrectly or....

    Thanks.

    I don't think it's normal at all.

    you can switch to internet mode - it's on tools > options > mail services.

    are you running fax or sync software? outlook normally closes completely within 5 min, sooner if you use exit and log off. (the mapi spooler stays in memory for a few minutes after using exit or x, but not if using exit and log off.)

    switching modes probably won't end outlook staying in memory, since an app is causing it, but internet mode has better features for most non-exchange server users.
