    Outlook does not send/received immediately when connected although the tick box is ticked. I have tried unticking it shutting down and then re-ticking it but this makes no difference. Cant find any other option to set this. Can anyone help.

    that's for sending.

    in general, you can tell it minute wise, how often to check for mail.:cool:

    Yes I understand that but should it also receive on startup automatically. I'm using Outlook 2003 the previous version sent and received upon startup.

    hey bonehead, i have outlook 2000, not 2002 or 3 and i told him what works for me.

    312336, this is kinda cluttered if you ask me.
    what if you don't have any groups, which group do you copy?

    you who knows all, i'm still waiting for your documention from a while back when you told folks not to use the default folders in oe.

    pull that rabbitt out of your hat will ya please.

    just remember, i could forget more than you'll ever dream of knowing about computers.

    still no signature of where/what's in your rabbit hole.:eek:

    Thanks Sekirt!

    I use Outlook2007 and couldn't send flawlessly (for no reason items just would not send or took ages to do so) or send/receive automatically at startup and every few minutes. First article solved both issues.:cool:
