    I recently had to downgrade to an old CRT monitor from my wide-screen
    LCD. Now, when I click on Send/Receive in Window Mail the dialog box
    that pops up displaying the progress of the process is halfway off the
    screen to the right. I can't grab the window to move it back towards
    the center of the display and can't find a way in Windows Mail to
    reposition it.

    I thought that this thread "Screen resolution change also changed
    Windows Mail in Windows Mail" at

    had the answer when Sinner replied: "After it closes, on the Status
    bar, double click the "New mail" or "No new messages" icons. That
    should bring the send/receive dialog back up so that you can
    manipulate it."

    Only thing is, I have no "Status bar" at the top of the screen - the
    only options are Tools bar, View bar, Search bar - and no icons for
    "New mail" or "No new messages". These icons aren't even available
    to me in the customization process.

    What am I doing wrong here, and/or what do I need to do to get this
    window re-positioned?

  2. The "Status Bar" is usually the strip at the bottom of the window. I
    believe you can accomplish this by double clicking to the right of the
    "Working Online/Offline" message.

    Thanks, that did it. You'd think something like this would show up
    somewhere in the Windows Mail "Help" info, but I never found it.
