When the OutlookBar is minimized its content is hosted in a popup and you should have in mind that the popup is in another visual tree, this means that you cannot get to the main window this way.
I'm not sure about your scenario, but if you need to get the main window, you can try using this code-snippet:
var window = Window.GetWindow(sender
I hope this information helps.
