When you install an add-in in Outlook and send a new message using that add-in, an orphaned button for the message appears on the Windows taskbar. You can use the button on the taskbar to maximize this window, which appears to be a duplicate message; however, the message is a ghost image and does not function.

This problem occurs with add-ins that access the body property of a message from the OnSubmit event in the Outlook object model.


To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).

To obtain SR-1/SR-1a, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
