MS outlook 2003 send mail problem


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..

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

How do I do that ? I know how to do it Outlook Express but not sure in Outlook .. is it Tools -> options -> add new mail account ?

If so, hv already tried that in vain :(

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Start-Control Panel-Mail-Show Profiles and create a new one there.

one last question.. My preview pane doesnt appear for one mailbox.. appears fine for another pop account but the Preview Pane option simply doesnt appear in the View menu..

anything hidden ?

thnx a lot,
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.
