My Outlook 2007 stopped automatically sending and receiving emails. Strange ! I checked the settings (Tools->Options->Mail-Settings(tab)->Send/Receive) – it was set to ‘Schedule and automatic send/receive’ every minute. Still no automatic send/receive.
I performed windows updates. No effect
I deleted and recreated my email profile (via control-panel->mail). No effect
Then I stumbled upon the dialog
and at the bottom is an item called ‘Disable Scheduled Send/Receive’. It was selected !!! Unselect it and, voila, send/receive works !
Question is, how did it get set in the first place ?
