    Hi all,
    I have a buddy who has a new dell laptop connected wirelessly to a linksys router. He can only receive mail when using send/receive. Outbound mail sends automatically. I have checked the send receive options and is set to automatically s/r every minute.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.:)

    Hi,

    You went to Tools | Options | Mail Setup (tab) | Send/Receive.. | Schedule an automatic send/receive every xx minutes, and when Outlook is offline?

    also, may want to increase that to 3 or 5 minutes....sometimes, albeit rarely, it will hang and decided that it has already done that s/r for that minute.

    Hi there,

    With settings as Zack mentioned, I receive my email without hitting anything, so long as Outlook is open. I am also using a Linksys router and connected wirelessly.

    Hey Zack! :cool:

    EDIT: I actually do have a 5 minute cycle.

    Hi goobie

    Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

    I have deleted the duplicate thread, please only one thread per problem.

    Have you tried the Help > Detect and Repair option in Outlook 2003?
    If that does not solve the problem, try creating a new Profile and see if that makes a difference.

    Could McAfee have anything to do with it?

    If McAfee is disabled does it make a difference?

    "This" group is the group called "All Accounts", correct? The settings I have, by default, are different for that and the "Application Folders" account.

    For the "All Accounts" group, I now have all 3 checkboxes checked. (for the online operation). Also, have you tried Valis's suggestion of extending the time to 3-5 minutes? Has he closed and restarted Outlook between changes?
