Outlook Send/Receive Intermittent


Thread Starter
Jun 23, 2021
I was wondering if someone could help? Upon opening my Outlook it starts and sends/receives just fine. After 5 mins when it runs the send/receive process again it stalls and no more emails can be sent/received. On trying to send an email (Just text no attachments) it crashes.

While in the process of the second send/receive attempt I can see it pauses on 'Synchronizing [email address] for inbox'.

I have to close the program and open it back up again to sort of 'Refresh' it. On occasion it doesnt even open and i have to restart the laptop...

Any ideas and help would be greatly appreciated.
