Hi,

I have an unusual problem.

I need to change my email account within Outlook but when I go to 'Account Settings' there are no accounts there, and so nothing to change.

What could be causing this, how do I access my account and how do I rectify it??

Many thanks!

:)

Are you sure that your email is coming in through Outlook?

Post a screen shot of the Account Settings pane!

Hi Again,

Thanks for your help and reply.

I think I may have nearly resolved my own issue. Somehow, in Outlook my original email account wasn't being displayed in the account setting screen. Whenever a new account was created with exactly the same details, this brought back numerous errors (because the account already existed but couldn't be seen). Anyway, long story short, I resolved this by deleting the Outlook profile in the Control Panel (which somehow deleted my invisible account) and created my account again.

Now, everything looks fine but when I click on send/receive it looks like it's retrieving EVERY email that there ever has been (in blocks of 270). There must be thousands of emails that it's attempting to send/receive. Is there anyway around this or some way to get Outlook to send/receive all emails in one large block (instead of me having to click send/receive every five minutes as this would take forever!)

Regards.
