Outlook 2000 send/recieve frequency

I'm stuck, baffled and otherwise irritated...... I currently have a few users who are using outlook 2000, and for some reason, they aren't getting messages automatically, they have to hit the send recieve button to get their mail. I'm looking for the setting that will let me configure outlook to auto send/recieve every "n" minutes.

All the users have Exchange accounts and are running XP Pro
I have recently installed SP2, but this problem existed previous to that.
......my brain hurts.....
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

check this setting:

go to tools, services, click the Exchange account and click properties.  On the General tab, under "When starting", make sure the dot is in "Automatically detect connection state".

As far as I know, there is no setting in Corporate or Workgroup mode with an Exchange account to "send/receive every x minutes".

Stefri, I didn't see any Mail Setup Tab in the Options window, however the link you posted has serious potential. I'm researching the port stuff right now..... I'll let you know.

Mark, you're right about no option for setting up the send recieve frequency. I did check the connection state and it's already set to automatically detect.
