Hello All,

I have taken the bold step of setting up Outlook 2002 SP3 for XP to be my e-mail interface using the Comcast POP3 SMTP protocols.  When I send e-mail, everything works just fine.  If I want to see incoming mail, I find that I have to click on the Send/Receive button.  Nothing is crashing or doing anything else wrong.

Is this normal? Can I make changes so that e-mail is received without manually using the send/receive button?

Please Advise,

Thank you.
