Emails not showing up in Inbox

My emails will not show up in my inbox until I press the send/receive button.
How do I get them to show up automatically. I ask for an automatic
send/receive every 2 minutes.

2 minute interval is way too close. Change it to 10 minutes....

Re: Emails not showing up in Inbox

I changed the send/receive to 10 minutes and the test email did not show up
after 15 minutes. Any other suggestions?

Pardon my intrusion, but why is LKH's send/receive to close? Why isn't is a
good idea to have Outlook ask fot mail at this interval?

Thanks

Because it disrupts the mail server amongst other things, that's why the
default polling interval in Outlook is 10 minutes....

When you say "test" email, did you use the Test Account Settings in the
Email Account setup dialog, and if so, were there any errors shown? If you
didn't use that method, then I suggest you do, as it quite often gives the
solution....

Re: Emails not showing up in Inbox

I sent an email from another computer in our office to see if it would show
up in the inbox. It did not without manually using the send/receive button.
I also did the test in the email set-up program and everything is working
correctly.

For what interval (in minutes) is the *automatic* mail poll configured
in your UNIDENTIFIED version of Outlook?

For what type of e-mail account are you polling? POP3, IMAP, HTTP, or
Exchange?

Re: Emails not showing up in Inbox

I am using Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 SP3 with a POP3 account. The
account is set-up to check for new messages every 2 minutes.
