Default can't enable online status

Hi there,

I am currently using Windows Live Messenger, and for some reason I can't
turn on the online status option in Outlook Options. The option is grayed
out...

Does anyone has any idea of what I am missing? I am using Outlook 2007 under
VISTA Ultimate.

Thanks in advance!

P.

Do you have the most recent version of LM?

8.5.1302.1018 works here - I don't think the point build makes a diff, but
if you have a different one, maybe it does. I don't really enabling anything
other than installing the correct version and hitting the box in tools,
options. Check the addins (tools, trust center) and see if anything is
disabled that could affect it. (I have no idea which ones would affect it.)
