IE 7 and Explorer Bar / Missing OE envelope icon

Xp Home sp2

All antispyware and AV updated (system clean)

I know there are a few problems still with IE 7 but my question is:

In IE 6 the Explorer bar used to show the OE shortcut icon (Envelope),but IE 7 does not.Although this is not a major problem as i can access OE from the start menu.IE 7 is set as my default browser as is OE my default email client.

I would like to know if it possible to add the icon to the explorer bar.After researching MS and Google i still cannot find any way to do this.
This may be something silly that im missing or overlooked.

As usual all advice and replies welcome and greatly appreciated.

Right click the toolbar, Customize Command Bar, Add or remove commands. Click Read mail in the left pane and click the Add button.

I don't have IE7 but with IE6 you just click View > Toolbars > Customize and add icons from there. I would assume that IE7 is pretty similar.

VoG™ Heh heh, I'd forgotten about doing it that way!

Thanks VoG™ / Jak_1

Already got that but it will not open OE,only send page by email and send link by email plus the normal extra's ie: zoom/text size/encoding/view source etc.

I was hoping to be able to just click the icon and OE opens to my inbox.

Do you think i need to customise OE from within OE ?

Sorry guys got it....had to move it up the list,not enough room on the command bar.

Thanks again Doh ! :-))

Said it would be something silly !!!
