Outlook standard toolbar has a mind of its own?

I have a pretty much customized "standard toolbar" in Outlook 2000.
Every now and then, this toolbar changes for no apparent reason (e.g.
certain buttons get text, some of them are shown twice etc.).
Sometimes closing Outlook and starting it again helps to show the
toolbar in the right way, but often I have to manually fix the buttons.
Is there any solution to this issue? I've seen it on at least three
different computers.
I guess it has something to do with different "standard toolbars" shown
in different views (Inbox, Calendar, Tasks...), and obviously the
application can't always handle the customizations very well.

Do you have any third-party toolbars installed?

None whatsoever. The only add-in is PocketKnife Peek which also has a
button in mail views.

Outlook HTML signatures, with graphics
Hi I have created a HTML signature, which uses a company logo, as a graphic. I created the HTML file, and copied the actual Signature, directly into Outlook, using the 'Advanced Edit' feature, which allows Word to be used as the editor. All works fine. I can send mails to other users, and my signature is fine. It also appears fine when received at the other side. However, if a user sends me a mail, which I reply to, or forward, my signature is attached. The formatting takes place (ie. the HTML works), and the signature is displayed, however the graphics are not shown. They are inste...
