Outlook 2002

On one office computer(Dell Inspiron 5100) , when I configure an Outlook account and use the "Test Settings" button, all is well.

Outgoing and Incoming Server settings are OK.

And here is where it becomes interesting, the usual e-mail message from Outlook is not received.

Nor are any messages sent to that same account in Outlook, nor to any one else.

Outlook can send messages successfully, but cannot receive.

If the accounts are configured on any other computer in the office, both receipt and sending of mail is fine.

Any ideas.........

Thanks for the help.............Great Site

Have you tried disabling firewall and anti-virus and checked if the email will go ?

When you send and receive messages , do you get any error in the send/receive dialog box ?

post the error number here
