Question about Microsoft Outlook 2002 for PC

Send/Receive Error with Outlook 2002

We are a small company (2 Desktops, 1 laptop) using Outlook 2002 with a Linksys BEFSR41 ver. 2 router. We have been experiencing inconsistent error messages trying to send outgoing mail through our SMTP server. Both outgoing port 25 (SMTP server is on sbcglobal.net) and incoming port 110 (POP 3 server) are open.

Sometimes we can send emails and sometimes we cannot. We shut down, unplug the router and sometimes we can start to resend emails.
We hired an outside IT tech to make sure our email server is connected properly but we are still having issues.

Would upgrading the server help? any other suggestions?

If you are using Microsoft Exchange account, check if you use cached exchange mode. If not, enable it. Click on "File" tab >> "Account Settings" >> "Account Settings" locate your exchange account and click on "change...."
Under server settings, check Use cached exchange mode.

You can check another setting to help resolve being able to send but not receive e-mail messages.

You can set up Microsoft Outlook to check for new e-mail messages at intervals of one minute to 1,440 minutes (one day).

On the "Send/Receive" menu, point to "Send/Receive Groups", and then click on "Define Send/Receive Groups".

Select the group that contains the e-mail account that you want to regularly check for messages.

Under Setting for group "group name", select the Schedule an automatic send/receive every x minutes check box.
Enter a number from 1 to 1440 in the minute's box.

Close the dialog, click on send/receive or press F9 button and see if it works.

Tip

Microsoft Outlook Outbox Insight into Send/Receive


Have you ever sent an email using Outlook, and your email goes into the "Outbox" instead of being sent? This tip may help you to determine what's going on.

The Windows Task Bar

On the Windows task bar located at the bottom of your screen, is the "Icon Tray" that is helpful in determining what's going on with what is currently running. When everything is working as it should, the icons will look similar to the ones shown here. The icons you see vary depending on what services and applications are currently running. It also depends on which icons you have chosen to be visible, hidden, or visible at certain times. Those options are located in the Task Bar Preferences.

1. The Outlook icon shows that Outlook is running normally.
2. The envelope shows there is a new email message waiting. There is no need to open Outlook to check for new messages.

The Outlook Status Bar

When Outlook is running (not minimized), it has its own Status bar in the lower right corner of the Outlook window. This image shows that Outlook is connected and performing a "Send/Receive" to check for new messages and to send messages from the Outbox. The Windows Taskbar also shows that Outlook is performing a Send/Receive (indicated by the change in the Outlook icon).

When you send an email, the email always goes to your Outbox where it waits to be delivered. When does it get delivered? Well, that depends on the following two factors: 1) there is an internet connection. 2) Outlook's setting for the Send/Receive interval. You can set Outlook to perform a S/R immediately when you click Send, but technically you're setting Outlook to perform a S/R immediately when a message is put in the Outbox. Normally this happens so quickly that you don't notice the Outbox turning bold. But rest assured, your outgoing message always goes to your Outbox to await its time even if it's immediately.

You can have Outlook perform a S/R based on a time interval of your choosing. This is useful when you have limited connection at certain times of the day, or you if you want all your emails to be delivered in a batch at one time rather than "as you go". Having Outlook perform a S/R every 15 min, for example, means that during the times between, your bandwidth is free for other types of traffic like video chat where the more bandwidth available, the better.

Problem Indicators

When problems arise, glance down at the two bars. Using the image here, see if you can determine what's wrong before reading the explanation.

It's actually quite easy. If you look at the icons in the proper sequence, the first one to check is the internet connection. For me, it's the second icon from the right next to my volume control. Shown here, it indicates I've lost my internet connection. I wouldn't need to even open Outlook to know what the problem is. With no internet connection, Outlook can't connect.

If I did open Outlook, I'd most likely see what is shown here. Outlook shows it is Disconnected and that there is a Send/Receive error. You might wonder in bewilderment, as I do, why does Outlook attempt to perform a S/R if it knows it's disconnected? I guess that's for the geniuses at Microsoft to figure out.

Check the setting for your quota. If that's small, you will get these errors all the time. Or, you can stop using Outlook.... There are other free e-mail systems.

If you have a DSL or cable Internet connection, you may use a Linksys router to get on the Internet. When you reset a Linksys router, you'll likely solve your connection problem.

Most Linksys models have the reset option on the back of the router. Use a pointed pen or pencil to press in the reset button on your Linksys router. Hold down the reset button for approximately 30 seconds. Watch the lights on the front of the router. After you reset the router, power will get restored to the Linksys router. Once power's available, you can switch the modem back on. Reconfigure your router. After you reset your router, you'll have to log in and reconfigure your settings. The login name is typically left empty with your password as "admin."
Reset a Linksys Wireless Router b> You may need to reset your Linksys wireless router if you are having Internet connectivity issues or other networking problems. You can reset the router to the default factory settings, such as the default IP (Internet protocol) address, username and password. However, after you perform the factory reset, you can follow the initial setup instructions to replace your previous settings.

Write down any important settings you may have--such as the router's password--before you reset the router. Locate the reset button on the router. Some Linksys models have a reset button on the back side. Other Linksys models have a small pinhole you may need to access by using the tip of a pen or pencil. Press and hold the reset button for a minimum of 30 seconds to perform a factory reset on the Linksys router. The Linksys router should lose power. Power on the Linksys router to initiate the configuration wizard. Reconfigure any previous wireless settings on your Linksys router.

Hope this helps.

Hi, welcome to fixya solutions.

Now the first thing to check will be your firewall settings and see if that is what is blocking the mails and also check and see if the computer is clean from virus. Run a virus scan.

Sending large messages can time out over a slow connection

By default, the timeout is hard-coded to occur at 90 seconds. You can extend this period to accommodate messages that take longer than 90 seconds to send by modifying your Windows registry. Specifically, add the following keys to override the hard-coded timeout values:

Outlook 2002 and Outlook 2003 loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation');
  1. Start Outlook.
  2. On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
  3. Click View or change existing e-mail accounts, and then click Next.
  4. Click your POP3 account, and then click Change.
  5. Click More Settings.
  6. Click the Advanced tab.
  7. Gradually increase the server time-out setting until the issue is resolved.

What error-message do you get when you try to receive?
Are you sure that there are "new" messages to be downloaded?

Ask your ISP if they have a 'Webmail' interface, e.g.,
http://webmail.roadrunner.com that you can use to look for "new" messages. Ask your ISP if they have been having any problems with their mail-server.

Check your Outlook 'Account/Mail' settings, to confirm that the 'incoming' server cited is the correct name that the ISP recommends.
