    Can't stop syncing

    I have several email accounts. If I sync them individually, it works fine, or at least seems to do so. If I just send/receive all accounts, there are a couple-three that get hung up somehow and will sync for 45 mins. or more.

    What would cause this and how can I fix it?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    What version of Outlook? Up-to-date with patches?
    How are they email accounts configured - POP, IMAP, Exchange?
    Are all the accounts with the same ISP?

    Joe, I'm sorry I didn't get back sooner. All my patches were / are up to date on Outlook 2010, and all through the same ISP. I finally just dumped the setup and rebuilt So far, so good. Here's hoping.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Any security software checking Emails?
    Try running Outlook in safe mode to see if any add ons might be at fault.

    Jerry, I THINK it's settled down. I couldn't find any conflicts so I deleted the profile and started over. Now I'll just wait and see, I suppose...

    Thanks,
    Chuck
