Outlook 2003, Version 11.0

XP Professional SP3

In the right corner of the status bar a small section is bordered off for

displaying connection status. The words "Connected" or "Offline" should

appear to show connection status, with a right-click menu. On my work

computer it does - same version of XP Professional and Outlook 2003. On my

home computer this section of the Status Bar is completely blank and when

right-clicking on the mouse, nothing happens. The only thing that shows in my

status bar is the number of emails in the in-box, and any action that may be

ocurring at the time, like "Downloading 15 of 34 messages..." for instance.

The rightmost section of it remains blank. Is there a setting for this

function in Tools/Options that I have been unable to find? The only reference

I find in "Help" is "Show or hide Status Bar".

That menu only exists for Exchange accounts.

It sounds like you are not making an Exchange connection from your home

computer.
