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.

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.

Thanks.
