    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by JohnBF on 19-Nov-03 10:42. Added step for installation of OUTEX.ECF.)</P>Understood. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> If it was there and now it isn't, (this menu is from 2000, but I think XP is the same) go into Tools | Options | Other tab | Advanced Options | Add-In manager and make sure "Exchange Extensions Commands" is checked. If that option isn't there, from the Add-In Manager, install OUTEX.ECF (again, that is for 2000, can someone correct me if it's different for XP).

    Ay carumba! If you have do not have any custom menu settings (they may be deleted), try View | Toolbars | Customize | Reset, and report back.

    By chance has your Exchange Admin disabled O-o-O Assistant? My company was going to because of Spam, but after a great hue-and-cry elected to continue O-o-O.

    Re: Out of Office (Office XP )

    Braddy, I don't have access to XP standalone at this time, I hope someone else can assist you. But:

    1. See my original response
    2. In 2000 the O-o-O menu is context sensitive; it only appears when you have a mail folder selected (which is odd, why isn't it there when a Calendar folder is selected?)
    3. Did you try to reset the TB's?

    Have you installed AVG Virus Software at any time? I suspect 'AVG Exchange Extensions' is not the same as 'Exchange Extensions Commands'. Did you used to have O-o-O and now it's gone, or was it never there?

    If you do not have an Exchange mailbox set up in Outlook, you cannot use the Out of Office Assistant. Instead, you can create a rule in the Rules Wizard to reply to your mail. I stopped doing this because (1)
