Outlook trigger


  Hi There :)

 I believe that hitting the Send/Recieve button in Outlook 2000 means that Outlook syncronize itself with Exchange or something? But can Outlook or Exchange be configured so that Outlook tells Exchange when to recieve and send mail, so that you dont have to wait the usual 15 min.?

Yes but the exchange server get the mails from somewhere. When i send a hotmail to the computer the exchange server has to get the mail from a server.

when you send from hotmail , i am sure the exchange server should get the email immediately
it is only since you use outlook , you can determine when to receive an email depending on the automatic receive timing

But that doesnt work when you use a POP3 connector right? Then you have to wait the 15 minutes?

that 15 mins looks hardcoded and by design
