PDF attachments (Outlook 02 on WIN XP PRO)
<img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> I have an irritation rather than a problem and I hope somebody might be able to help. Whenever I print a PDF attachment, and close the email, the PDF program remains open albeit with nothing in it. I have to close it manually. Is there somewhere I can check to have this close automatically? Thanks for any assistance.

Re: PDF attachments (Outlook 02 on WIN XP PRO)
Are you using the option in Outlook to print the attachments along with the message? I don't use that setting, so I'm not sure how Outlook "knows" to print attachments.
I suspect it would be the code in the Registry, available in the File Types dialog (Windows Explorer>Tools>Folder Options...>File Types>PDF>Advanced...>Print) that is the culprit. You could test this theory by right-clicking a PDF in Windows Explorer and choosing Print and seeing if it leaves the application open. When I do that, Acrobat Reader opens invisibly in the background and then stays in memory (AcroRd32.exe active in the Task Manager). The command string in the dialog is:
"C:Program FilesAdobeAcrobat 5.0ReaderAcroRd32.exe" /p /h "%1"
I didn't try it from Outlook.
