On my Microsoft email. When I am on the email page the left pane (outlook web access)(inbox, calender, contacts, and other stuff) is not there. Is there a setting that controls that pane(window). I have deleted Microsoft web email and reinstalled and still no left pane (outlook web access)
I sent email to Microsoft, no answer yet. And also posted on windows secrets lounge, no answer yet.

Any suggestions

Note: I use yahoo mail for general email. And Safari with Microsoft web mail for business. No I do not have an apple computer, just a PC with windows 7 professional

and partitioned for different functions (with stand alone external hard drives for work and just a short cut on my PC)

It is called the Navigation Pane and depending what version of Outlook or Outlook Express with vary how you turn that on.

Thanks Mark & Dale

I deleted and reinstalled Microsoft email l still no go. But I got a nice ;) email from my (old Company) Business exchange servicer asking what I was doing?. So I told them (email) and low and behold (navigation pane) is there. After all these years (6 years) I forgot I was still on my old companies email server. I just never paid any attention that every 90 days they asked for an password change/update.:unsure: Another email from me to them IT/HR that I was no longer with them and they responded (after leaving/retiring) we moved your status to consultant and you are still active.) Wonders of company loyalty to employees.

P.s. I have over time got new desktops/laptops and just mirrored/moved everything over, so the companies exchange server info just moved with me.

another wonder :rolleyes: they reminded me of all the benefits that I still have as a retired/consultant. (I always got there newsletter/bulletin and just wrote it of a bad/slow address mail purging :)

another problem solved.

Walt and Connie!

Good job, I would have missed that without sitting at the computer and checking the settings.
