    Outlook won't download email (Outlook 2003)

    Outlook on my laptop will not download email. When I use Outlook on my desktop it works fine and when I look at my email on the web it "jives" with what I am seeing on my desktop. I also use NewsGator Inbox for RSS feeds and they seem to be coming through fine on the laptop that is not downloading regular email. I tried "Detect and Repair" with no success. Any thoughts are appreciated !!!

    Have you tested the settings under Tool | Email Accounts | View or change existing email accounts | Next | Change | Test Account Settings? What are the results?

    I tried that but I guess because I use "Outlook Connector", when you click "Change" a box comes up that just asks for your account name and password for Windows Live Mail and there is no "Test Account Settings". In any case, when I tried my next Send/Receive, A box came up that said to the effect that my Outlook Inbox and Windows Live Mail were not synchronized (no kidding) and would I like to do a sync repair. I chose "yes" and the email has worked thereafter. Thanks for your prompt response.

    Are you using "Outlook Connector" on the desk top?
    If NOT, try NOT using it in the laptop and see what happens!
