I like my Windows Taskbar on the top of the screen. It would seem your automation or manual testing never considered it possible to have the taskbar on the top of the screen.
Thus, when one launches outlook in that situation it doesn't ever check to see if the VISIBLE top of the screen should be queried instead of just ***-U-MING blithfully that the absolute top of screen is where the app should be anchored to on launch.
Please 1) fix the app to check for visible top of screen on launch 2) don't entirely rely on blind automation 3) do some real testing and 4) PM's have the courage to fix those customer issues the test dept finds, or customers report.
