STOP USING TASK MANAGER TO KILL OUTLOOK.EXE!
Are you frustrated like I am that Microsoft**
Outlook* doesn't shutdown. When you exit Outlook does it
stay running the background wasting system resources? We'll
if you are then you need Shutdown Addin.
Outlook is notorious
for hanging around in the background when a user exits
the application. The cause of this is partly a random behavior
of Outlook itself and most often a user installed addin
that does not release itself from Outlook correctly. Typically,
the solution is to uninstall the offending addin. However,
if you really like an addin and can't wait for the developer
to fix it or have no addin's installed and Outlook STILL
stays running the background then you'll want to try Shutdown
"I was going insane without this program."
-- Kathy Perry from Canada
Shutdown Addin works by hooking into events triggered
by Outlook and invoking a series of commands to help Outlook
exit. After a certain timeout period, if Outlook still doesn't
exit, then the process is forcefully exited.
Once installed, Shutdown Addin
inserts a property page into Outlook's Tools->Options
dialog that allows you to quickly and easily change
any of Shutdown Addins options.
You can control the following options:
- Enable/Disable the
- Increase or Decrease
the time you want Shutdown Addin to wait before
forcing Outlook close.
- Enable or Disable
the shutdown process dialog that Shutdown Addin
displays when Outlook exists.
- NEW: Close
any hidden winword.exe processes when using
word as your email editor.

This product is known to conflict with
Outlook addin's that perform their functionality ONLY
when Outlook exits. Microsoft's backup utility for Outlook
is on of these addin's and that Shutdown Addin may interfere
with. In these cases you may need to increase the shutdown
delay time to give the addin enough time to complete its
work before Shutdown Addin forces Outlook to exit.
