Have Outlook 2013 (64 bit I believe) and Lync 2013 (32bit) on a Win 7 machine.

When I add an address in an email I used to (in Outlook 2007 and a different laptop-XP) see the availability of that person--green, red, etc.. in a little square to the left of the email name.

Now I just see a white square. BUT if I hover my mouse on the contact name a pop-up shows if the person is available (and with color as it should).

Thoughts?

Thanks
Peter

These squares in the address fields:

Go to File, Options, People is Display status next to name enabled? With that disabled you'll see status on the people cards that popup but not next to their name in the messages.

Yes that option which is named a little different in Outlook 2013 has always been checked.
Thank you though

I can live with it or in this case without the little square to the left of the email name when composing an email. Perhaps it is a bug or fault in installation or communication with the calendar or Lync. Who knows. Thanks

I would uncheck it, restart Outlook and recheck it. This often fixes options that are enabled but not working.

Oh well, we tried. Nope. But I do indeed thank you.
