Hi,

I created a new mail account for the exchange server but am not seeing any mails (there r quite a few). I can send emails fine but cant seem to receive any..

I tried the same on another machine also running outlook 2003 and it works fine..

What could be the problem in my machine ?

I tried changing the setting for "Deliver new mail to fwg location" from Personal Folders to Mailbox (ATC) and back and nothing happens.

pl help..

The profile could be corrupt.  Create a new profile and see if that helps.

Have you verified that the password is correct on the errant machine?
Check that local drive for *.pst and see if they happen to be going in there.
It looks like it is communicating fine with the ES but is just not seeing the Inbox.  Is there a rule or filter applied?

You may need to do a Detect And Repair for the one that does not have the Preview Pane option.  It is under the Help menu.
