Hi Experts,

I have several email accounts set up in my microsoft outlook 2003.

When i send and recieve it seems to only check One email account. I know this by checking the details when i send and recieve.

However it does send emails from all my accounts and when i test account settings it works with no problem.

I know the emails are there because i checked using the webmail for my domains.

I set up my accounts just according to a tutorial provided by my domain registrar/hosting company.

What am i doing wrong?

Go to Tools and Options

Click on the Mail Setup tab and then the Send/Receive button.

Take a look as to what email accounts are in the group (click on the edit button) and see if the accounts are selected.

Also take a look at the check boxes at the bottom (especially the top two - Include this group in send/receive and schedule if you need to).

Thats excellent, I had a temporary send/recieve set up which only included one account.

I removed that and now all accounts are being checked.

Thankyou very much, you saved me some time and stress.
