Trouble downloading mail from ISP [message #96521] Sun, 10 December 2006 18:58 Go to next message

I'm trying to reconstruct my system after a crash and I'm having
trouble getting my mail downloading to operate as it previously did.
Using OL98/WinXP I used to click the Send/Receive button and I would
get any new messages from my provider (Juno FWIW) as well as sending
any messages that might be in my Out box. Now when I click on the
Send/Recieve nothing happens immediately (and I know the server has
messages in its Inbox) but I will come back at a later time and I will
have new mail in my Outlook Inbox and the server Inbox will be
emptied. I must not have something right yet and any advice on what I
need to look at would be greatly appreciated!

Oh, and for what it's worth, I'm not using Juno for outgoing mail
since I've never been able to get that working, rather I use a
different smtp server and that seems to be working fine.

I just found the problem. I was still logged into my juno account
through the web interface and this prevented Outlook from downloading
the mail.

Thanks for looking at this!
