Outlook Express 6 new mail indicator

  bathjobby 13:48 05 Apr 2005

Until I rebuilt my machine some months ago, when outlook express 6 received mail it would put an envelope icon on the windows taskbar to indicate new mail. Now, do you think I can find the option for my new install of outlook express 6 to do that ! No I can't.
Anyone got the answer ?
Thanks in advance.

Don't know if this helps but you could play a sound when new mail arrives - in OE>tools>options>general and put a tick in "play sound when new messages arrive"

Thanks GroupFC but I've got that one. Want the indicator so that I can see at a glance if I have received new mail when returning to machine and OE is not the active window.

Sorry but don't know the answer! Maybe somebody else will happen along who can help!

Good luck!

Try, right click taskbar, left click properties/customize, make sure you have new e-mail is not set to always hide.
