I have recently noticed that some of the icons disappear occasionally from my Outlook Express toolbar for no apparent reason!
Normally the following icons are on the toolbar (when I click on the Inbox): Create Mail, Reply, Reply All, Forward, Print, Delete, Send/Recv, Addresses, Find. However sometimes only the icons for Create Mail, Reply, Reply All, Forward are visible (with spaces in between). If I close the program then open it again all the icons are showing. Has this program become corrupted somehow? Do I need to reinstall it?
I have run my antivirus program and nothing untoward shows up. I am using a firewall (NIS 2003).
Although I do not use OE I do have it on the computer. Have you tried right clicking on the toobar clicking customise and reseting the icon options? It might work to stablise it again. From that you can tell that I'm not very technical!
Don`t know what OS you are using but you could try going to programs-system tools/ pick system information and look at tools you should be able to pick from a list of options I think one repair Explorer-outlook express or restore to previous version. You can then update from microsoft to outlook express 6.
