There might be a suimple answer to this, but for some reason it's beyond me....

I have MS Outlook 2000.  When I send an email, it actually sits in my Outbox until I select the "Send/Receive" option on the toolbar. Similarly, I don't receive my messages on a real-time basis, rather Outlook looks for new messages every minute (I set it to do that in the Account properties menu because I couldn't get it to work automatically).

Now, I have Outlook 2000 at work and don't have this problem.  Is there a way around it?  THANKS!

As Dassa writes, you are probably doing POP3/SMTP Mail at home. It only checks mail every x minutes (as specified). You are running it in my Outlook calls Internet Mail mode. When you are at the office, you are connected to an Exchange server in what Outlook calls Corporate Workgroup mode.

Now, with your mail sitting in the Outbox, you should be able to change it so that it goes out immediately. You need to change the Default account. Go to the Tools menu, then click on accounts, select the account you are using and click the Set as Default option. Close the windows. Not sure if you need to restart Oulook or not for it to take effect.
