Are you checking by process or by application.  I'm typing this under 
Linux, but if I remember correctly, system tray applications don't show 
up in the application list, but are still running.  You probably have to 
terminate it from a right click on the system tray icon.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
