Outlook 2010 reopen and connection problem
Posted on 2010-11-25
I have been facing an annoying problem on a fresh new machine installation with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and Outlook 2010.
Outlook 2010 with IMAP port 143 and just simple settings will get stuck with send/receive after one-two s/r attempts and can got functioning again only by a machine restart, and, the problem is there again just after few moments! There is probably appearing some corruption on the net connection modules/settings ...
Another syndrome on this is appearing, if Outlook 2010 is closed and reopened, it will not got opened properly, but stuck on "Loading Profile". Sometimes the previous Outlook.exe is still active on the processes and a new one opened aside, so, there is two of them, and, even more, if tried to open several times, but sometimes just the newly opened process only. Anyway, Outlook 2010 will not got opened, probably about for the same net connection problem as described above.
OK, I have found some corrective hints, profile recreation, add-in disablings etc. other tricks and tried them, already a few times, but nothing seems to help ...
An old neighbour XP-machine on the same 4-port network switch with Outlook Express 6 and same IMAP port 143 simple settings do work all fine! So, there may not be much reason to blame the ISP/mail-provider ... Neither to blame the firewall or other programs/services, as no type of fresh/clean/safe starts do not make any difference.
And yes, one more note, the account settings test hasn't worked at all, neither the first time when establishing this account nor on any test after any correction trial!
One guess, could there be some bug on the Outlook 2010 32-bit version, used on a 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium, causing some corruption on the net connection after one-two mail send/receive attempts? And, where/how to obtain an Outlook 2010 64-bit version?
Please, give any hints to this desperate ocean-deep research on these MS products ...
