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?

Just Outlook. At work I'm having the same problem.

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.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.

Turn123,

I accidentally hit “accept” on your comment. I would like to give the points to shadow417. What would I need to do to make that change?

thx,
