Hi

New Outlook email doesn't appear for my customer until Outlook is closed and open again. She continually has to open/close to get her new email.

Where is a setting for this??

I see this occasionally on Outlook 2013 but 2010 and earlier are fine.

What I do is wait a minute or a bit less and is shows up.

I am assuming the person is doing a Send/Receive.  Go to Outlook Define Send / Receive groups and make sure that Auto Send / Receive is enabled and set for the time interval desired.

If you are connected to Exchange server there should be no need to do anything with Send/Receive groups.
Does the problem follow the user to another machine? If not then it is a problem with the workstation, probably around network connectivity.

Outlook/Exchange communicate in a push method when in cached mode. Nothing to do with send/receive settings. Exchange tells Outlook that something has changed and then Outlook does a query. If that pushed packet is not being received, then Outlook will just sit there, because it doesn't know anything has changed.
Restarting Outlook simply forces Outlook to do the download of fresh messages.

It isn't a setting that you can toggle on/off, it is an indication of a fault or something blocking the traffic.

Simon.

Outlook profile had to be rebuilt. Categories turned had to be turned off as well.
