figured out why outlook 2003 didn't shut

Finally figured out what was going on when Outlook 2003 left its icon on the
task manager and send/receive continued to function even though i had shut
outlook down.

My Compaq PDA is the culprit: removed the PDA from its caddy and then
Outlook shut down perfectly.

Hope I've saved some of you a few hours of experimentation.

Having a PDA or fax software are 99% of the reasons why Outlook does not
shut down. That answer has been posted here in reponse to this problem
since Outlook 98 came out.

Well, i've been using office and outlook for years and years. And an ipaq
for about three years now. Earlier versions of office didn't "choke"
shutting down with the Ipaq attached. Must be a new feature, the logic of
which escapes me.

Moreover, I am trying to be helpful in sharing my "discovery" with others.
That my beans were refried doesn't negate my effort to be helpful in sharing
what I found.

The tone of your posting -- and another one to a poster asking about
Newsgroup issues -- is just sour.

I have the same problem with Outlook not shutting down properly. I
have a Dell Axim and was trying to see if there was any resolution to
this PROBLEM! I couldn't agree more with your reaction to what is a
blowoff to finding a solution. It's like saying, "Well it's been a
problem for 5 years and you should have known that." Is this common
knowledge? Are there any plans on addressing this issue?

My PDA uses Microsoft Pocket PC, my synchronization program for my PDA
is Microsoft ActiveSync, my e-mail is Microsoft Outlook, my O/S is
Microsoft XP.....Gee, I guess that I make a HUGE assumption that these
programs would work well together. Oh yeah, it must be that Microsoft
didn't make my PDA?!?!?!?!
