Microsoft Outlook 2007

ausman89 used Ask the Experts™
I use Microsoft Outlook 2007 on an Exchanger Server 2003 environment.
I used to be able to just click the "Send/Receive" button on the standard toolbar and Outlook would check for and download any new e-mail messages.  Now, if I click "Send/Receive," nothing happens.  I have to click the "drop-down arrow" and then click "This Folder (Microsoft Exchange Server)" to check for new messages.  

How can I make the "Send/Receive" button work correctly again?

Ok, so I cannot believe I never saw this or tried this before, but I had been in here, in the send/receive options before, but something caught my eye this time.  Under the group name "all accounts" I clicked edit, and the "Include the selected account in this group" was not checked.  I checked this box and POW it all works again.  The answer was not complete, but got me back to where I needed to be.
