In order to receive new emails in Outlook I need to keep pressing send and receive in order to get them.
I have closed and reopened outlook and its the same issue

I've tried sending emails from my GMail and I had to press send and receive twice in order to get them.
Had to wait for at least 2 mins for the emails to show up in my Outlook inbox.

Try creating a new mail profile for Outlook.

Open Control Panel and click Mail

In the mail dialog box click Show Profiles.  Click Add to add a new profile and run through the new mail setup.

Change the "Always use this profile" option to your new profile

Start outlook and try sending a test message

Are you running in cached mode?  This is usually a sign of corrupt OST file.  Close out of outlook, rename the OST ext to .old and reopen Outlook.

Can you tell us what version you're running and if it's in cached mode?

Try outlook in safe mode. run--> Outlook /safe
Disable outlook add-insands and then  test.
if not try a new profile . it could be an issue with OST file.
