While I do usually prefer the keyboard, there are times where I have hold of the mouse and don't want to move to the keyboard. But if I want to quickly check for new messages in Outlook 2007, I must go to the keyboard and hit Ctrl-M.  I can't find any clickable icon that will do the send/receive for me. I have all toolbars displayed. Is there a send/receive icon that I can click with the mouse?

You have icons missing from you standard toolbar. I'd reset your icons. There is a send/receive button in the standard install. It is usually about two or three icons to the left of your search bar (address book). I suspect it is in the toolbard displayed above, but it is hidden. Try clicking on the >> arrow to the right of the help icon ( ? )   .

Okay, I got rid of the web toolbar, and moved the advanced toolbar down below the standard toolbar, which caused the entire standard toolbar to be displayed.  I also reset both toolbars.

However, it's still not a simple send/receive all icon. Just clicking on it does nothing. I have to hit the arrow to the right of it (circled in red), which produced a drop down. Then I must select send/receive all from the drop down! Isn't there a way to have a simple one-click icon to send/receive all?

actually, the button is designed to send/receive all. If you want to send/receive from/to a specific account, then you would use the dropdown. Run a repair on Outlook to be sure that you have not lost this functionality. I just tested it on 3 of our systems and they all work as designed. One click sends/receives every time. :)

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Okay, it does send/receive. Had to send myself a message to see that it was actually doing anything. Thanks.
