    For 2 days I have tried to figure this out! I have 1 laptop, 1 desktop and a droid that all retrieve my email from a charter POP3 account. They have all worked beautifully since set up months ago. A couple days ago - the laptop stopped receiving email, but will send. Here is what I tried:

    checked accoutn settings - all identical to desktop which is working fine.
    turned off firewall - no change
    did a system restore to the day before it all started - no change
    created a new profile and then deleted the old one - no change
    Uninstalled a recent Outlook 2007 Security update - no change

    I don't know what else to try. When Outlook either manually or automatically tries to send/receive, send goes through and then it hangs on "send/receive status 50%" indefinitely. This seems like an easy one - but I am sooooo frustrated. Can anyone help? i searched the forum and could not find this exact problem. I feel like it is related to the updates but I did the restore to no avail!

    One more thing - a test message from account settings DOES go through and IS received. That is the only thing I can receive.

    And another thing! The Microsoft Office 2007 SP2 was just installed and the update cannot be uninstalled.
