Problem:

I hid the Outlook envelope by accident, thinking it was temporary. Of course, it isn’t. D’oh.

Solution

To get it back:

  • Tools Menu > Options
  • Click the E-Mail Options button.
  • Click the Advanced E-Mail Options button.
  • In the When new items arrive in my Inbox section, check the Show an envelope icon in the notification area checkbox.
  • Click okay to confirm the various options screens and you’ll be back in business.
