Windows 7: lost working online message in Live Mail

lost working online message in Live Mail


For some reason today I could not get my email, then my ISP finally found the reason-- it was their fault-- but in clicking a lot of buttons, turning the computer on and off and resetting it so many times, I lost the message that usually sits just above the time, day of week, action center etc. In the lower right. There is also a tiny blue world icon there too. It usually says; working on line or when I check my mail or send out mail it tells me that. Now it is gone.
I still get notice that I have mail but it is only sound. Can anyone tell me how to get it back?
I hate when these things happen as I know I have not done anything intentionally to have it happen.

Sounds like the status bar, click on the "view" tab, then status bar on the right.
