New E-mail Auto Check option on Windows 7

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Earlier I had Win Vista with MS Office 2007 installed on it for two or more years. Whenever I would open the Outlook, it would always check for new E-mails. Now I have installed Windows 7 along with the Ms Office 2007. Now, whenever I open Outlook, it doesn’t do the same i.e. check for new E-mails. I have to check my new E-mails by enabling the option ‘send/receive’. 

Please help me to activate the same option on Windows 7 as well.

New E-mail Auto Check option on Windows 7


Hi Rachel,

Go to Tools and Options on your Outlook 2007. Once you have the Options window open, go to the Mail Setup tab:

Go to Tools and Options

The option to "Send immediately when connected" is selected. Click on the button "Send and Receive".

Send and Receive

Here, you can set up Outlook to Send and Receive immediately once you are connected. You can also set it up to send and receive during exit or schedule an automatic send/receive regularly. If you want to make other changes to your current settings, just choose your Group Name and click on Edit.

Check also if your Outlook is in offline mode. To do that, click on File on the main screen.

Outlook to Send and Receive immediately once you are connected

The "Work Offline" option should be unchecked.

Once you are done with the changes, just close Outlook and reopen.

Hope that helps! Cheers!
