Tracking down memory leaks in Outlook Addin

Hi - our Outlook addin is working very nicely, but I've noticed memory use slowly creeps over the week, and the addin performance slowly worsens.

I assume it's probably a memory leak, but am having difficulty tracking it down. Would not setting a Outlook object reference to nil cause the same sort of behaviour? Anybody got any tips on the best way to find any leaks? (Fast MM4 doesn't seem to like being included in the Addin, otherwise I would use that)

Any advice welcome - I realise it's not much to go on!

Hello Richard,

No news so far. I know that our guys try to locate the issue and reproduce it on a simplified example. Also I know they can use EurekaLog, see http://www.eurekalog.com/details_delphi.php.
