I just bought a new computer with Windows XP and Office 2003. I use Outlook (not Outlook express) and I have to press the send/receive button to receive my e-mails.
Outlook will not do it by itself.
I tried the Microsoft site, the help files but I cannot find the place to configure the automatic function.

Hi Louise

I had a similar problem couple a weeks ago. Try this:
Tools/Options/Mail Setup/send-receive and than check the box "schedule an automatic send/receive every x min".

Hope it'll work.
