Default Outlook Question and Taskbar Question - Quick!

Hey guys, quick question.

Is there a way to minimize Outlook only to the system tray, and not on the taskbar? I'm getting a little annoyed with it taking up some of my room. Also, I have the "Hide Inactive Icons" button checked, but they won't hide! I'm using the Luna Compact Theme with the UXPatch thing, just for the record.

Thanks!

EDIT: Fixed taskbar problem, it just had to determine what they were. Still, Outlook?

I've been trying to figure this out for you, I use Outlook too, but for some reason I don't have a tray icon. But I read on a help site that if you right click your tray icon and click "hide when minimized" then it will be only in the system tray like you wanted. But I have outlook 2002 which might be my problem.
hope this helped

what u can do to make it hide when u have the hide inactive icons is go 2 the options for it and u can choose what icons are always hidden, only inactive, and always shown. just make it always hidden if u want

to be fair, I said that in my post earlier

anyone who has outlook 2002 and wants the same thing because outlook 2002 doesn't come with that function built in, I found a simple registry modification you can do. It works, I did it to mine.
