The last few days I have been getting this icon in my task tray, I don't know what it id but I know when it appears.

I will open Outlook 2003 and it will download all my mail. As soon as I click on an email message I will hear that "pop" sound and see the icon appear in the tray. I can't right click on it and when I single or double click it dissapears.

I would like to know what it is and why it's started happening, not to mention how to stop it.

I have attached an image showing what it looks like.

TIA

Hi doctortao...

That looks like the warning for low virtual memory. To check to see if this is it, click Start, then Run, type eventvwr.msc and click "Ok". In the left pane, click on "System"...in the right pane, are there any errors related to virtual memory or paging files?

I see a warning about Tcpip but nothing about virtual memory. Plus I opened Outlook again and when the icon appeared again I refreshed the event viewer and I don't see a new warning.

Does this icon give you any information if you point to it without clicking?
