On the drop-down menu for 'Tools' there should be a 'Rules and alerts' option
but this is missing and nothing I have done can make it appear. I have tried
it from mail-enabled inboxes and non-enabled. Email is IMAP. I am using an
imported profile, imported from a .csv where my other machine is fine and I
have 'Rules and Alerts' set up and working. It should be between 'Address
Book' and 'Organize' but they are all that's there. It doesn't seem to be
available as an option to 'Add' - i.e. 'add to toolbar'.

Thanks for the rapid reply. No I'm using Office 2003. The server is Server
2003. I went in to the Commands list as you suggested (it's similar enough to
2007) - it wasn't listed under any of the categories on the Customize window
or any of the categories when trying out 'Rearrange' - it should have been in
one of those lists, it just wasn't. I have Administrative Access on the
network, so it wouldn't even be hidden from me.
