Outlook 98 - Progress indicator when receiving internet  mail

A while ago I installed Outlook 98 on a Windows95 PC, with several patches applied to it. After installing Outlook 98, I got a window showing for every e-mail address how many message there were to send, to receive and how many were received yet. I thought this was a feature of Outlook 98.
Now I completely reinstalled my system with Windows98. After I installed Outlook 98 this time, it still just says that it is reading new message...
What do I do to get the progress indicator window back. Since I receive about 150 messages a day (via dial-up) it's nice to see how far Outlook is.

In the bottom right corner, when Outlook is downloading your email, it displays an indicator.  Click on this and choose unhide.  Also click on details... this will open the "progress indicator" you are speaking of..

I know the indicator was there when I installed Outlook 98 on Windows95 + patches, but it is NOT after installing Outlook on Windows 98 (fresh install).

I'm thinking that one (some) of the internet mail DLL's that was installed on my Windows95 did this, and that DLL is probably not installed (or another version) on Windows98

I'm running Outlook 98 in Corporate or Workgroup mode. Maybe this can make the difference?
