When I remove the icon for Outlook XP from my desktop it prompts me with a warning saying that the icon has special functionality and suggests I not remove it. I was wondering what this special functionality was?

Hi davious, The Outlook XP icon on your desktop appears to be a separate program or script that is connected to Outlook. When you right-click on that icon and select Properties, a menu comes up that is all about Outlook Express setup. If you double-click the icon, then Outlook itself loads. I believe that this icon is a configration program or script for launching Outlook. You can change some parameters by altering it's properties, and when you launch the icon, Outlook will launch with the properties selectd. Essentially, it is a glorified Desktop Shortcut to Outlook. Hope this helps.
