Hello everybody

I have a little big problem with a Outlook 2007 mail client.
I have a account created on but when i click on send/receive button nothing happened.
I've done a test in the account parameters and everything goes ok. Outlook can connect to the pop3 server and aloso can send mail trough the smtp server.
When i click on the send/receive button then nothing happened. I've send several mails to this account in order to have something to read and i send several mails from outlook in order to test that the account can send mails.
The send action works OK but on the receive action then nothing happened.

Any idea is welcome :)

check the pop3 settings and also verify the account is pop enabled.

try turning off the firewall on the workstation and disable the mail scanner on the A/V and see if that helps, if not you'll have to verify the settings in outlook

Outlook 2007 send mail without problem. There is no smtp error. The send function Works.
The receive function does not work.
When you create a new account you can test the receive and send function. Both works there is no configuration error.
But when the user click on the send/receive button on Outlook, there are no incoming mails. And i know there are mails to read.
If i write a mail as soon i click on send the mail is gone and i receive it on my google account.

ok, here is some things to try -

open outlook in safemode and see if it works

if that doesn't work, recreate the users profile in AD, not the outlook profile
