debugging NetOffice.ExcelApi.Worksheet in VS2010 causes Outlook Wizard to start

I swear. Seen this happen 10 times today.

protected virtual void WorkbookSheetActivate(NetOffice.COMObject sheetObj) 
      if (_sheetTaskPanes == null || sheetObj is Excel.Chart)     
So I hover over sheetObj and expand it, then expand the base and the base of that. Then I scroll down to ListObjects and EVERY TIME it causes Outlook to open. Since I don't have Outlook configured but do have it installed, it starts with the wizard.

Any suggestions here? This is just weird weird behavior but it's super annoying.

Edit: the debugger appears to be accessing the MailEnvelope (NetOffice.OfficeApi.MsoEnvelope) property of the object.

I know this problem. This is an MS Office-problem.
Some years ago, i face the problem first time n VB6(in the debugger!!!!) while i try to analyze a collection in the watch window.
Not sure why but Outlook is started. NO idea why....

Anyway, this problem is regardless from any API. Its just a scary MS-behaviour. (Your outlook is not configurated and f*cking wizard dialog is shown)
I cant't change the office implementation ;)
