Lately whenever I receive new mail, I get the mail notification box to pop up, but there used to be a flashing light in microsoft outlook tray icon. For some reason that doesn't blink when I have new unread mail anymore.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Perfect that's what I needed.

Secondly, when emailing is there a way to get thee BCC box to automatically be under the To: and CC boxes? I always have to click on the To button or the CC button in oder to get the BCC option.

Thanks again
