    OE6--order of accounts (OE6)

    How can one control the order in which accounts are checked, and the order in which tasks within a given account are performed?

    Example 1:
    Identity has three e-mail accounts. One of them is extremely slow due to uncontrollable server issues, but always gets checked first.

    Example 2:
    AS IS PROPER FOR SECURITY, the SMTP server will not send messages from an account that has not logged in by checking mail on that account. However, OE6 always does the "send" task BEFORE it does the "receive" task. I want to reverse this.

    On issue one, can you change the order in which they're checked by renaming them? In other words, are they checked in alphabetical order?

    No, changing the names of the accounts (or, for that matter, the order in which they were created) has no apparent effect upon the order in which accounts are checked. This has been a problem since OE5.

    I can confirm that...I have been trying to workaround these very same two scenarios for some time and have yet to find one. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    The order the accounts were created should be the way they are checked. Have you looked at http://www.tomsterdam.com/insideOE/index.htm for suggestions?

    I'm afraid order of creation is meaningless. It's not even some "we'll check all your Microsoft-related accounts first because WE think they're more important" nonsense, which I could at least understand.

    According to this KB http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=224416 up through at least v5, they do check by account name. I thought there was another trick to make it kick in though.

    Hi, MJ ~

    If that ever worked, it no longer applies to version 6.
