"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi kiran,
Try resetting the Standard toolbar. You do this by:
1) Open the View...Toolbars...Customize menu item
2) Go to the Toolbars tab
3) Select the Standard toolbar, then click the "Reset..." button

Hello kiranvvkk,

if the above from Brad does not work then try one of these
- do you have the smart menu feature enabled? did you click on the down arrow to expand?

- find and delete outcmd.dat from C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook. You can easily access
it by pasting %USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook in the Address bar of your browser or Windows Explorer.

- this could also happen when you have no mail account installed yet

hope this helps a bit
if that doesn't work,  click on Help, Detect and Repair and reinstall the application.  
Is it missing or is the option just grayed out?
