Probably a silly question, but I can't figure it out - I want to minimize Outlook for the user in certain situations (and then restore it again and bring it to the front later). What's the best way to do this?

Hi Richard,

You can use the WindowState property of the _Explorer interface to minimize Outlook and the Display method to restore it.

  OutlookApp.ActiveExplorer.WindowState := olMinimized;
