Hi,

My issue is that I have a user that when he composess a new e-mail or even opens an old e-mail he shows no Menu bars(Standard or Advanced). I have reset the Outlook Profile and repaired the installation. I still have yet to do a completed re install of office but just wanted to see if anyone else has had this happen and what really caused it.

Thanks,

Ricky

did you delete outcmd.dat? In Windows XP or Windows 2000, outcmd.dat is located at C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook. In Windows 7 or Vista, look for outcmd.dat at C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook. These folders are hidden, so you either need to paste the path into Windows Explorer (changing the username) or change the Windows Explorer options to show hidden files and folders.

That is from Outlook's Toolbars Don't Stay Where You Put Them
