    Outlook command line switch needed (2000)

    Is there an Outlook command line switch that will force Outlook to do a Send/Receive as soon as it opens?

    I don't believe so:
    OL2000: Additional Command-Line Switches (Q197180)
    but someone else may know better.

    no, but setting it to check every xx minutes will.

    bummer

    I was trying out a freeware spam utility called MailWasher that requires me to turn off the check every xx minutes in Outlook...it appears to support a command line to execute Outlook after it has detected mail.

    found a slightly longer list of Outlook command line switches for 2002 here...

    i used mail washer, but it didn't bother me that i needed to press send/receive. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    The url you have is a mostly complete list of command lines, they used to be split between help and a KB. I think it's missing a switch or two, but i forget offhand which ones.
