We have a user in our office who recently reported that Outlook 2007 is having trouble displaying newly arrived messages.
If he changes to another folder and then comes back to the inbox, the messages show up immediately.
Is there a setting that needs changing or is this how cached mode works. Please refer to this KB article for more information: https://support.microsoft.com/kb/3115602 There are a couple of different options you can take to resolve it depending on what works best for you.
I did leave outlook open overnight but it didn't sync anymore emails. Jeff Tech So Easy Zip Grep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.
Don’t set the automatic send/receive interval too short or you could end up endlessly polling the mail server, Send/Receive errors and sometimes even duplicates.
If you only have 1 account, do not set it too check more often than once every 5 minutes.
I’ve check about everywhere in my Account Settings and went through many options as well.
Where can I set how often Outlook should look for new messages?
You can find the checkbox for that on the Account Settings/Microsoft Exchange Settings page in the Outlook config.
In the environment I was in, any user that had that setting turned on would have to manually check for new messages, via folder switching or "Send/Receive" whereas anyone without the setting saw mail the second it hit their inbox.
I had the same exact problem, My outlook inbox would not automatically update when someone would send me an email. Clean up the backups, it's easy to end up with 8GB of PSTs laying around.
