Tip 734: Outlook 2003 buttons group with Word

I was pretty sure I mentioned this bug previously but can’t find it in the archives, so either I’m bad at searching or didn’t tip it yet…

Today’s ‘Outlook 2003 on Windows7’ bug is task bar grouping – when you use Word as the editor, the email buttons group with Word, not Outlook. I don’t expect this to be fixed, although it has been a problem off and on over the years (an update broke it, another one fixed it, then it broke again…) so I won’t be shocked if a patch is released to fix it…. right after everyone gets used to email grouping with Word.

The other Outlook 2003/Windows 7 bugs I’ve written about are a problem opening zips attached to email and the missing Office Assistant.
