Send / Receive e-mail error...,
Posted on 2004-08-06
At some point in the day, Outlook on my home computer will receive the error message, basically saying it couldn't connect. It only does this once a day or so, and if I close that error message out and try to send / receive again it always works. So it's not a matter of my connection working, it decides to throw a tantrum everyday. :) Anyhow...
The downfall of this, is that if this error happens while I am at work, the popup ever stays on the screen. And in the mean time, Outlook will not try to reconnect unless I hit the "Cancel All" button to close out the warning window. I have rules set in place that when specific people e-mail me, it's automatically forwarded to my work e-mail.
But what that error message being up on the screen at home, it stops sending me e-mails to my work.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Maybe something that will force it to reconnect and avoid the warning message?
