    Outlook Task bar symbols (MSO 2003)

    In my Outlook screen, on the bottom right corner, I have the word "Offline" and what appears to be a grayed out clock with a red 'X' on it.

    I couldn't find anything in 'Help'.

    I'm obviously not 'Offline'.

    Any ideas?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Can you select Work Online in the File menu?

    Hans:

    Uh...duh... well, yes. I'm sorry. I must've picked it somewhere.

    But how come I could still go online?

    That's all? Geez, that seems a bit silly. All you need do is disable the auto-send/retrieve, isn't it?

    When you "Work online", e-mails will be sent immediately after you click the Send button. When you "Work offline", they will wait in your Outbox until you click send/receive.

    I can be handy for people who travel with a laptop.
