From Outlook 2003 tool bar, I go to "Tools", "Customize" and select the "Options" tab. The check box for "Show Standard and Formating toolbars on two rows" is grayed out. Is there a fix for this?

Thanks in advance,

I have local admin rights. Is there any else I'm missing?

I don't think there ARE two toolbars for the Main window - if you select New Email, you'll then have the option to display both the formatting and standard toolbars.

shadow417,

I'm not referring to new email, its Outlook menu bar that display's two row’s instead of one.

Outlook's menu bar does NOT display the formatting and standard toolbars (that's why it's grayed out). If you display a window that DOES display the two toolbars (i.e. the new mail windows) then the option will NOT be grayed out.
