Before I can see if I detect the same behaviour in Outlook 2003, can you provide a bit more background detail?

What sort of RSS messages are these? I ask because for some strange reason I still eat a few feeds with Newsgator in Outlook.

Working with these feeds in X1, I certainly witness an increase in memory used by X1services when I delete a message.

Not sure about the size of the increase, but it doesn't seen to be quite 3Mb.

I would play around more, but the process is kind of slow on this old PC of mine.

No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.

Yup. Between 2 and 4Mb for every email I view.

Minimising X1 to the system tray does not seem to recover the memory.

By the way, it is quicker to hit Ctrl+Alt+Del to get the task manager.

Just noticed that Mem Usage has plummeted back down since I sent that message.

Seems to go up and down like the proverbial.

X1 had looked at this pretty extensively in the past and verified that it was a problem with the way memory was being reported by Windows itself. We added some logic that forces a trim of the reported memory after minimization.

If the only symptom of a "memory leak" is by monitoring the Task Manager and the problem goes away after a minimization (e.g. memory drops down within about 20 seconds of a minimize when a scan is not ongoing) then this is not likely a problem, but we can definitely keep taking a look at it.
