Is the normal.Dot from MS word 2003 the same template that is used to create a new e-mail in Outlook 2003 when you click New?

Good Day Experts,

When I click new on my MS outlook 2003, i get an untitled message with the toolbars at the top of the message.  Though one of these toolbars(e-mail) is below the TO:  CC: and Subject lines and I'd like to move it above those lines next to the other toolbars.  Now I can move it for that e-mail but when I open up a new untitled message then the e-mail toolbar is back where I moved it from.  Do i have to edit or is there a template just for MS outlook?

many Thanks,

Hi ellsworth2000,

The toolbars in Outlook cannot be locked into place.

Hello Blue Devil,

I beleive you 100% but, you wouldn't have a MS KB article that said that would you?  This way when I tell the user that it can't be done then I can say,"MS says so Right here."  

Many Thanks,

Unfortunately, I don't have a Microsoft statement to that affect.  The best I have are references like this one where an Outlook MVP (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional) says it's not possible.  MVP's are experts who have made what Microsoft considers a significant contribution to furthering the use of an MS product or technology.  They aren't Microsoft employees, but they are so knowledgeable about a given product that whatever they say is generally considered gospel.
