1. There are five mail accounts ie a b c d e
2. The send/receive button  will collect mail for bcde
3. a's email can only be collected by manually clicking on the tools button and selecting this mail account.
4. mail can be properly sent.
5. I have recently installed NOD32 and have disabled it. I also tried disabling Zone Alarm and any other running programs. No effect.

Is outlook corrupt?
How can it be repaired?

Greetings, ozgary !

1. Is a account the default account?  Change the default account to another one.  Now try to send/receive. Change the default account back to a. Test again.

2.  If no joy, in Outlook, go to Tools > Options > Mail Setup > Send/Receive button.  Make sure account a is selected to Send/Receive.  Check both options for "Include the group is send/receive". Click OK. Close and reopen Outlook. Test.

Best wishes!

1. Yes a is the default and I have previously done what you suggest to no avail.
2. I might be having a bad day but I cannot find Send/Receive. I go Tools > Options > Email-Options. I do not see Mail Setup Send/Receive button.
3. Group settings maybe the problem but where are they?

TIA - ozgary

To add to item 2 what war1 had stated above, and if you use Outlook 2003 - when you click the send/recieve button, you should get a window titled send/recieve groups. There will be a group called 'All Accounts'. highlight this and click Edit button. You should see the accounts that you have. Highlight the account 'a' and select  the top three check boxes. Then check.

Do not go to go Tools > Options > Email-Options.  Instead go to go Tools > Options > Mail Setup.  There you will see the Send/Receive button. Click on it and check the groups.

Go into Tools -> Options -> Mail Setup. In that listbox, is there an 'All Accounts' thing there? Make sure that's the only one listed. Click on 'All Accounts' and click the 'Edit' button. In the settings, make sure 'Include the selected account in this group' for all emails (a, b, c, d, e) and check 'Send mail items' + 'Receive mail items' under 'Account Options' area.

Just in case, check that the account settings for 'a' are all correct... Also under 'Folder Options' click on 'Download complete item including attachments'. Hopefully, this should allow all emails to be send/received from this account, and others.

Hope this helps/works - GL

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Here is another solution if your settings are different...

This is if you have separate emails in the Mail Setup area instead of just 'All Accounts'. Click on account 'A' and make sure 'Include this group in send/receive (F9)' under 'Settings for group "A"'. After that, click the Edit button. Tick 'Include the selected account in this group' and make sure 'Send mail items' and 'Receive mail items' are ticked under 'Account Options'. Also click 'Download complete item including attachments'.

One of these solutions should work for you

* If you find problems, or do not understand the post, please post back.

Sorry for the confusion.

Hope this helps/works - GL

The problem was solved simply by re entering the account into the group setting which I finally found. I know it sounds dumb but it was Outlook 2002 and the menus did not quite correspond to the answers above. How the account was removed remains a mystery but seemed to coincide with the installation of NOD32 and the disabling of norton internet security.
