New Mail Envelope Icon [message #36648] Mon, 02 October 2006 02:35 Go to next message

I have Outlook 2007 B2TR and I still cannot get the new envelope icon to
appear in the systray. I have all my mails moved by rules to separate
folders and this still isn't fixed.

Can I ask why on earth would Microsoft remove this functionality. I love MS
Office but this has made me seriously consider an alternative. It may sound
like a small thing but I cannot stress enough how annoying it is that this
feature has been broken from 2003 to 2007.

There must be a way to get this back? Surely?

Any help (or explanation for this madness) would be greatly appreciated.

Colin

Yes I've checked that. I don't use the hidden icons I show all the icons.
