Outlook 2010 not synching with Exchange Server 2007

Outlook 2010 is set up to sync with a third party Exchange Server 2007 hosting company for a small business. The client is running Windows 7 Pro.

Outlook 2010 says it is connected to the Exchange Server 2007, however, there are times that the only way to get new emails is to close out of Outlook 2010 and relaunch Outlook 2010.

The client has high speed cable Internet. Zone Alarm Security suite has been removed completely. Windows is handling the firewall. NOD32 is the new anti-virus program.

The hosting company is just as puzzled as I am regarding the resolution.

Hello,
check if client has correct configuration regarding (automatic send/receive) option.
the location of this is: when Microsoft outlook 2010 is open and connected to exchange server, go to file (up left of outlook) then options, on the left pane click on advance, navigate to the section send and receive and then click on send/receive button, make sure that (all accounts) while online has the option to send/receive every (choose time period) and included in the send/receive F9 checkbox.
apply the same to the (application folders)
Regards

I'm pretty sure the automatic option has been set to receive emails. Nevertheless, I'll double check.
