Outlook 2000 "send/Receive" feature question

I have Outlook 2000 SR-1 with Win 2K Pro. I cannot figure this out... When I used to click on the "send/receive" toggle a dialog box would come up that would tell me the status of sending & reciving emails, when it was complete, etc. There was a box (inside this dialog box) there to check to hide this feature & it was accidentally marked. Now this dialog box no longer comes up. Any ideas????? Much appreciated. I need this feature for work.

Click "Send and Recieve" button than you will see a processing icon shown on the lower right corner. rightclick on it and select detail to bring back the detail box.

I agree with percy k, his steps will bring the box back so you can toggle that option again.

Percy k & Zoplax,

I did click on the Send/Receive button & saw the 2 envelopes on the far right bottom corner in the Outlook circling each other. There is a upside triangle that is directly to the right of these 2 circling envelopes that appears it could be a drop-down menu, but when I left or right click on it nothing happens. I tried about 20 times to right click on this & nothing happened. I have Outlook SR-1 (version)

What am I doing wrong??? Any other suggestions?

both percy k and zoplax are correct, if you are having problems, send yourself a 1 or 2 meg file. This will give you the time to test out a few different options! e.g. click on the message, icon, whatever, but you get it back!
