Xfce panel notification area

I just installed an Xfce system. I usually use Cinnamon, so I was unfamiliar with the panel. I moved it to the bottom and then removed a few items. I was looking for a notification area, but it must have a different name, because I deleted it. I thought, no problem, I'll just add it back. But no, it's not available. And if I enter "notification" in the search box, I see a grayed-out entry for Notification Area. Why isn't it available?

Re: Xfce panel notification area

Mine is greyed out in the list, too, and I still have a notification area in the panel. If you see a wicd (network) icon in the panel when the desktop starts, it's in the notification area. If I point the mouse at the correct stop, I can right-click and get the Properties box for the Notification area.

If I remove the notification area, it's no longer greyed out in the list, and I can add it to the panel. Apparently, you can only have one.
