In the heat of the moment it is natural to want to just Alt-Tab between applications. You may be working in Word and feel the overwhelming need to check your mail. Alt-Tab brings Outlook to the fore, so you Alt-Tab again to get back to your prose.
Doing this can cause Outlook to slow down and even stop. Outlook is still active, just waiting in the background. The suggestion is to minimize Outlook between peeks.
"Get in the habit of minimizing Outlook 2003 rather than just using Alt-Tab or a Windows task bar button to switch to another program. If you leave the full Outlook 2003 window active, it may use so much memory that it stops responding"
Microsoft KnowledgeBase 827310:
Outlook 2003 stops responding after a long period of use
"While Outlook 2003 is running, it periodically pages memory in and out of the process address space. When the memory that is free is large, Outlook 2003 is permitted to have more pages in memory. This increases the memory that is being used by Outlook 2003. If another application requires memory, Outlook will release memory.
