    Why is Outlook so Finiky (OL 2003)

    [helo] Loungers

    OK why is Outlook doing this, and must I do something drastic to change it? See enclosed image...

    Each time Outlook download a message it gives me a Sys Tray "task bar" icon <img src=/S/aflame.gif border=0 alt=aflame width=16 height=16>?

    Suddently I have no space on the task bar, and all my windows get stacked. Some times if I run the mouse pointer over some of these icons, they go away, but not all the time.

    Help Please

    <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20> in the <img src=/S/bagged.gif border=0 alt=bagged width=22 height=22>

    I think those icons are put up by Norton Antivirus when it scans a message, not by Outlook itself. If you get many icons, you must be receiving or sending many e-mails, or there is something wrong with NAV. Make sure that you are not sending out spam.
    You can turn off the icons altogether in the Advanced Email Options in Norton Antivirus.

    And I've just begun to experience McAfee's equivalent email behavior, since purchasing a new Dull laptop. The MOST annoying is when I get into a back-&-forth email dialog with someone using the same subject heading, text only with no attachments, and McAfee has the audacity to pop up a dialog warning that "this might be a worm"! I'm thinking, "no, worms are smarter than you". If there's a way to get rid of this I haven't found it, and I need to visit the McAfee website.

    Sorry about the rant.
