How do I get Outlook to show the icon in the Inbox that indicates that a

message has been forwarded or replied to? This is Outlook 2003. (It used to

be there but disappeared!!!!)

What type of email account do you have?

Don't know how to answer that... I check all of my different email accounts

with outlook 2003 - earthlink, gmail, yahoo, etc... in the column to the

left of the email columns of 'from', 'subject', etc, there is an envelope

icon... that envelope looks closed until I open and read the email... then

there used to be an arrow, either left or right over the envelope depending

on whether I replied or forwarded the email... now those icons have

dissappeared... thanks!

Are you using IMAP or POP3? Do the messages all get delivered to one inbox or one for each account? The reply and forward icons don't always work on imap.

They should definitely be used with POP3 messages. I don't know that I've

ever seen them not work - I'd start with Detect and Repair (Help menu) and

reset the view - at start menu, run, type outlook.exe /cleanviews.

See http://www.outlook-tips.net/beginner-user/reset-the-view-in-outlook/ for more information

on resetting views.
