    WinXP (SP-1), Office 2000 (SP-3), Set for POP3 email only.
    If I open outlook and it downloads messages and I simply close it, it shuts down properly.
    If I open outlook and open ANY message, whether new or previously read, and then close the application, it appears to close, but outlook.exe is still running in Processes. So I have to End Task on it to totally close outlook.

    I have run both AdAware and Spybot-cleaned it all up.
    Ran Norton as well as Housecall Antivirus checks-nothing found.
    Disabled all the Norton Firewall stuff as well as the services-still same problem.
    I’ve even uninstalled and reinstalled office2000.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in Advance!

    OL2000: Why Outlook May Continue to Run After Exit The times I have noticed when Outlook leaves a process still running after exit, is when it is checking for new mails, and I close Outlook. A process stays running because of this.

    I have come to accept this as a quirk of the program.
