I haven't seen it again, and I think I've filed other Emacs 26 pretest
bugs since then.  I believe I ran into it from emacs -Q, but I'm not
100% sure of that.

I now have Outlook/Office 2016.  I "upgraded" to it recently from 2007.
The version we have may be tweaked by my company, to integrate it
with the mail server etc.  Not sure what that "integration" might involve.

If the problem occurs again I'll try to track down more info about it.
