    Recieve without sending? (03 SP3)

    I want to set outlook to receive mail immediately and continuously when outlook is open but I only want it to send every 20 minutes. Is this possible?

    You should be able to set up send/receive groups to do most everything you want. Go to Tools | Send/Receive | Send/Receive Settings | Define Send/Receive Groups Or CTRL+ALT+S. You can setup a group to send only and one to receive only. The only thing you won't be able to do is have Outlook receive continuously. I think a one minute interval is the most frequent you can set.

    Sort of along that same note, I have an account that I only want to receive e-mails, and not send. I tried leaving out the send info but Outlook '07 didn't like that at all. Ideas?
    Thanks John

    Don't leave out the send information in the account definition. Setup a send/receive group that only receives.

    I already had it set up in it's own group, but don't see anything in there that will allow receive only. What am I missing?

    Click Edit. You can specify for each account whether it will receive mail and/or send mail through this group.

    You need to edit the send/receive group. Select the account and choose whether to send, receive, or both. Don't forget to remove the account from the "all accounts' group.
