Hi All,

I have Outlook 2000 talking to MS exchange (not sure what version).

To get a new message to display in Outlook I need to click on a different folder and then click back onto the Inbox before it will show, is there any way to have it appear immediately without having to click on another folder?

Thanks
Grant

Try this:
close outlook.
deleting the file called "outcmd.dat" from your userprofile\application data\microsoft\outlook folder.
open outlook.
Did it help?

Sorry, this is no longer a problem for me as I no longer have this machine and did not manage to test the suggestion above beforehand.

Can this be closed/deleted.
