Did you do a clean install? Outlook can be a picky program.

To do a clean install you would need to uninstall (keeping your key numbers)

got to toolbar>tools>internet options>general tab>and erase all your cookies.

then you need to turn off all running programs including your virus control Turn off all the little icons on the lower right that you can.

then try a new install.

If this does not work, get ack to me, I used to have the same program.

Right-click on the toolbar (on "forward" or anything around where the send/receive usually is) and make sure the "standard" toolbar is checked.

Also make sure you are in the inbox, not the calendar or sending a mail or anything like that. =-]

Why doesn't it work correctly?


Also, make sure nothing is in your Outbox folder. If any emails are stuck in this folder, it will cause issues.

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.

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.

Can't send or receive mail with Outlook 2003 and can't find a FREE repair.


You should first check all the mail setting for the mail account that does not work.

Your ISP will have those on the help page for your ISP.
If its is hotmail or yahoo mail etc then they too have help pages with the information you need.

If your settings are all correct then move onto checking your firewall and other INTERNET safety software such as antivirus. Norton can cause all sorts of issues with send and receive mail.

If it is outlook that is at fault then a simple and quick "repair" installation of MS Office will tend to sort those out. Just put your office CD in and follow the instructions but select the "repair my office installation" option

You didn't give a lot to go on so I can only give you the basic options to try point you in the right direction

Exchange not sending/receiving emails


Hiii,
You need to first check all connector related to Emails, if they are working properly. You can check receive connector by going into Server Configuration then Hub Transport and then you will see Receive Connectors are listed at right side below to server name. Just enable all receive connectors.
exchange-not-sending-receiving-emails-w3i35ygaym0a2mtgexp5w2fh-2-0.png You can check for send connector in Organization Configuration then Hub Transport and then at right side in Send Connectors Tab. exchange-not-sending-receiving-emails-w3i35ygaym0a2mtgexp5w2fh-2-2.png Enable all send connectors. Now check for services by going through Server Manager in start menu. In server manager window Click on Configuration then click on Services. You can check below displayed image of server manager for details.
Now check for send / receive.
exchange-not-sending-receiving-emails-w3i35ygaym0a2mtgexp5w2fh-2-5.png If you are still getting send / receive error then defragment exchange database edb file.
You can defragment edb file using Exchange Management Shell by executing this command:ESEUTIL /d "c:\edbfilename.edb" you can see its in displayed image. Now check for send / receive mails.

Cannot send, reply or forward my Yahoo e-mail


In microsoft outlook, clik on Tools> E-mail accounts>View or change existing e-mail accounts>change > correct outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings and press Test Account Settings.
If you receive a Task error message: ( X Send test e-mail message "Failed" ) perhaps you have been disconnected by your e-mail provider.
