Hi Stephen, do you mean that it is not visible in the bottom left of the task bar in the quick launch area? If so, find the icon on your desktop or in the Start Programs menu and drag it to the quick launch.

Otherwise, tell me more

Hi, thanks for the reply.

I mean that whenever I get a new message in outlook and the gold envelope appears, I mistakingly right clicked it and selected hide envelope. I didn't meant to do this and need it back!

Hi stephen_constantine,

What version of Outlook have you got ?

I can think  of couple of things

a) Hope you are mentioning the icon with the clock inside it (typical outlook icon) and not an yellow envelope. An envelope comes when you get a new email and disappears after the email is read

b) If you have outlook 2003 , then when you minimize it , instead of staying in the task bar it would go to the system tray .. The same can be done for outlook 2002 by tweaking the registry. Did you mean that ?

Open outlook
go to tools --> options --> email options --> advanced email options and
check
show an envelope icon in the system tray

close outlook
open and check now if it would appear when you get new email

Hi sunray_2003,

I'm using Outlook 2002.

Yes, I mean that icon whereby an envelope appears for new mail then disappears when you read it.

I don't really want to go tweaking the registry but I'll do it as a last resort.

Thanks,

Stephen
