Hi Guys,

I have Outlook 2007 on my Vista Laptop - when i first had it installed, it used to download my emails every 2 minutes (which i set it to) and i used to have a small pop up with the heading aswell - now i get nothing? All the settings about checking the right email and how often and that are set right - when i double click the outlook icon in the bar near the time, a message pops up saying "Microsoft Outlook is not responding" - yet it still opens and when i click send/receive - it downloads them no problem - any ideas or help on getting it back to automatically downloading them will be appreciated.

Many Thanks in advance,

Simon

Double check to make sure the box "Schedule an automatic send/recieve every X minutes" has a check in it. Also make sure it is set to 2 min.

You can find this in Tools>Options>Mail Setup Tab>Send/Recieve... under the "Setting for group "All Accounts"" heading

As i said in the first post of this topic : "All the settings about checking the right email and how often and that are set right" - so doesn't that give the hint that i have checkd it several times?

Anymore ideas anyone?

Do you have "Hide when minimised" enabled ? If it is , try disabling it and see how things proceed .

That wasn't the problem - i found out what the problem is - i thought about it while sitting in the front room! - I clicked on the drop down box next to the send/receive box at the top of the page, then went down bottom to send/receive settings and noticed the 'Disable scheduled send/receive' was ticked - so unticked that and it works a beauty now. Thanks for help anyway.

Yes but that is hardly final, mine was showing up as checked but it was not actually checking for email at the scheduled times. I had to uncheck, restart outlook, and then recheck the box. It then resumed normal operation.
