I am guessing you use a POP3 account, check in your outlook settings, change it to leave a copy of message on the server. If you read messages on the web interface do they normally download?
If you have McAfee or some other antivirus running on your computer, it will work to screen out infected email attachments, so they don't go to your Inbox.  They will go directly to some other folder like "Quarantine".  They appear to vanish but it does not mean that anything is wrong.

Sometimes it will bit late to come to your outlook due to network traffic. And you can set your send/recieve frequency via settings. then outlook will automatically check for send/reciev items for perticular inteval. I need more clarification please don't hesitate to reply.

Incoming Mail Server(POP) : ip /pop3 mail server
