Send/Receive - You do not have appropriate permission to perform this operation

In outlook I receive the message "You do not have appropriate permission to perform this operation" when i try to do a send/receive.  I have performed several system restores and upgraded to office 2003 and neither of those have helped.

Does both the computers connected to internet the same way ?

Does both the computers got the same OS and same outlook version ?

Does both the outlooks in the machines got the same level of update ?

Make sure to update your outlook with the latest service pack and updates going to
http://office.microsoft.com

Close outlook , open it and check if it would work now

lizintexas,

What kind of account do you use inside outlook for downloading or sending emails (POP3/IMAP/Exchange) ?

Is the outlook connected to a domain ?

Are you the administrator of the machine ?

Are you able to do other functions fine inside outlook except sending and receiving emails ?

Post back

i've tried 3 separate pop3 accounts.  they work on outlook express on the same machine.  

i don't think outlook is connected to a domain.  

i am the administrator and only user.  

i can use the other functions.

outlook worked fine for about a month and then started giving me this error message.  i have done several system restores and installed 2003 and neither of those helped.

Take a backup of all emails and go to control panel ---> mail --> delete the profile and recreate one again
Recreate the email accounts

Close and Open outlook again and check sending and receiving

Please make sure the password you are giving is correct.

Also do you have any anti-virus running .. temporarily disable it and then try checking email

lizintexas,

The suggestions given there for outlook 2000 and 2002 might work for 2003..

have you confirmed from your ISP that everything is fine ?

Did you check about Anti-virus in your machine as I had suggested in my previous comment

i have another computer running on this isp and it is working fine.  also, i have had this problem for a few weeks and have tried it from several locations.  

anti-virus is disabled like you suggested.  

ready to throw this computer out the window.   i shouldn't have such problems with a computer i've had for less than 2 months.

this one is through wireless, and the other is a cable.  but, i have tried this computer with the wire and it still doesn't work.  

no, not the same.  the good one is a mac.  

i tried this step in the message above -  and i got all the way to "pass yourpassword" and when i entered my password it came back - ERR bad login.

Bring up a dos box and type "telnet myname.no-ip.com 110". This will connect to the POP3 server. You should see a greeting message.
Type "user your@email.address" and the command should be acknowledged.
Type "pass yourpassword" and you should get a message saying the password was accepted or if not an error message. If there is any error at this point Outlook would have said the password was rejected but it could have been any error.
If you are able to connect you can use the "list" command to list the entries in the mailbox and their size. Type "quit" to exit.

that's what i've been afraid of.  my neighbor said that when  you do that you never quite can get it back to where it was, but if that's what i have to do, then i'll do it.

i don't know how to do the nic card reinstall, but i'll figure out and try that first.

thanks for all of your help.
