    Help! Subject box is gone! (XP)

    Something has happened. The subject box is entirely gone when I try to compose a new email message, reply to one, or double click on a received message. I've searched the knowledgebase- no help. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Maybe a custom form has been substituted for the "normal" one. Here is a Microsoft article pointing to a forms administration kit. Not sure it's safe to be playing with this, but...could it get worse? I personally would wait to hear from MaryJ before using it. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    How do I check to see if it is disabled. I am looking at the view menu, and I don't see an option that seems to apply? (wordmail has been disabled.)

    Go to the menu select "View, Message header". Message Header is a toggle and on turns on the header the next time turns it off. You must have a message opened to do this.

    You're right (somewhat embarrassed). I must have turned it off. I just didn't associate message header with the subject box.

    THANKS!!!
