Outook automatically gets new mail.

Hi.  I've been using Outlook 07 for a year now. I have told it not to automatically get email, however there must be a second switch I have not found because every time I am working in one of the mail folders inbox new messages keep popping up at the top of the list.

How can I turn this annoying feature off?


Thanks


Paul

Hello Bluewhale,

Go to Menu Bar > Send/Receive > Send/Receive Settings > and checked "Disable scheduled Send/Receive."

Go to Options > Mail Setup. then uncheck send imidelety when connected..

Hope this helps!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hey guys.

I did go to Send/Receive and disabled scheduled events, but wonder why unchecking send every X  minutes did not accomplish that?  

I'm leaving Send Immediately When Connected going to see if I can keep that. One would think Outlook might be as able as TBird... Or hope.

I'll give it a day and see what's what.

Paul,

Changing this: "Go to Options > Mail Setup. then uncheck send imidelety when connected"

has fixed other users' problem.

well, just restarted Outook and checked settings

'Send immediately' is not checked
All of the boxes under send/receive settings-all accounts are checked
Schedule auto send/receive is not checked  


and it still takes in emails, apparently when they arrive.
This message system is IMAP, which I don't know as we've never used it before. Is it possible that Outlook using IMAP can't refuse to accept messages/show them when they arrive?

IMAP account is different. It sync with webmail.  So if there is a new mail in webmail, then it is almost instantaneously reflected in Outlook.
