Strange Drawing-pin icon button - What does it do?
Posted on 2001-08-23
Can someone tell me please if they know what purpose the "drawing pin" or "attachment" icon button serves which appears in the Outlook Express Online Send and Receive Mail window? It appears in the bottom right hand corner of the expanded window when you select DETAILS as it sends and receives email.
The pin appears to be an icon to indicate "attachment" and is in the opposite corner to where it says
0 tasks of 4 have been completed ....and monitors how many e mails have been sent.
Pointing the mouse over it, shows it becomes a button and Clicking on the pin causes it to change the side view of the pin to an end on one, resembling an Acorn! There is nothing in the OE Help file that I can find, which even hints at why this control exists nor what it is for.
Tried clicking on it and leaving it in "acorn" mode but there is nothing obvious going on!
I was wondering if it had something to do with abandoning an attachment download but apparently not.
