Unhappy Outlook XP - does not send/receive emails automatically...

Spent over an hour reading the help section and trying every setting in tools > options

Simple problem really. I just want Outlook XP to automatically send/receive emails when I start it up and periodically afterwards. It used to work fine before for over a year. But now, all of a sudden, it doesn't work and I have to click send/receive button manually each time.

I have been to tools > options > mail setup and clicked 'send immediately when connected', but doesn't have any effect.

Thanks in advance for any possible advice you may be able to offer.

Send a message via Yahoo to ADZ

if it is anything like outlook express, then go tools, options...then under send/recieve messages (which is in the main tab) select "check for new messages every...mins" and set that to 1 min...so that it will send and receive every 1 min.

Everything is set up correctly as per your advice (thanks!). Must be a quirk that has developed. Will reinstall the entire program again.
