    Hey folks,

    I did some tweaking and Windows updating this weekend and when we went to create a new message in OE6.0 we noticed that the big button shortcuts are gone ..meaning, there's no big "SEND button etc. when I create a new message You have do go to "file" "send message" etc.

    All that shows up when I click Create Mail is the "From, To, CC, and Subject, then the body of the message to type in.

    Same goes for when we receive and email, there's no big shorcut button saying reply etc., we have to clcik "Message" reply to sender.

    No idea how I lost these shortcuts, anyone know how I can get them back? I've tried everything, to no avail.

    Note: When I open OE 6, there are big shorcut buttons along the top like: Create Mail, Reply etc.

    Any ideas where I went wrong??

    1. Create a new message.

    2. On the message menu, select View, Toolbars, and make sure that "Standard Buttons" is checked.

    You checked the menu on the message (as opposed to the OE6 menu itself)?

    Was the option for "Standard buttons" checked?

    Then the only other thing I can suggest (which you've probably already done) is to uncheck the "Standard buttons" option, and then reselect it. Other than that, I'm stumped.
