set shell = createobject("wscript.Shell")

shell.run "outlook.exe", 7, False '... SH_SHOWMINNOACTIVE=7 "should" work

wscript.Sleep 4000 '... may need tweaking 1000=1second

success = shell.appactivate("Outlook Today - Microsoft Outlook") '... window

must match first screen

if success then shell.sendkeys "% n" ' ... Minimize Alt Space Bar - n

i published by group polciy as login script it work just fine

but i need outlook to be hide to system tray how can i do that by login

script ?

any help
 
If you were to use the Outlook object model you'd set the

Application.Explorers.Item(1).WindowState = olMinimized. Or

ActiveExplorer.WindowState.

Using only Win32 API calls you have to post a message to that window's hWnd

to minimize.
