Outlook 2000 Doesn't Refresh (i.e., show new messages) Immediately After XP SP2 Install
Posted on 2004-09-07
Ever since I ran Windows Update and installed SP2 to my computer, Outlook doesn't refresh like it should and show new messages as they arrive. The only time new messages appear is if I move from one folder to another (e.g., click from 'Inbox' to 'Sent Items' or 'Deleted Items'), open/delete/forward/reply to and existing e-mail, or send a new message. When any of these actions are performed, new e-mails that have arrived will then appear in my Inbox.
Right now, the only way for me to tell if I've gotten a new e-mail is when my Blackberry goes off. At that point, I will go into my Inbox and open my most recently read message and the new e-mail(s) appear(s).
Has anyone had this happen before? It is very annoying! Please help... thanks.
