    Where did F5 go? (2003)

    After a recent upgrade to OL 2003, I've discovered that my beloved method of downloading mail from the server no longer works. That is to say, F5 no longer performs a send/receive. Is this something that I missed somewhere, or am I the only person that uses it?

    Hi Mark,

    Don't know about previous versions but OL2003 uses the F9 function key. Never knew it existed until you mentioned F5. Just tried it and it works.

    Cheers, Bob

    Thanks, Bob. Appreciate that. It's a minor irritation, I'm used to F5 being the "Refresh" key in many applications - Outlook included. Seems like a rather pointless change to me, but then Microsoft excels at that.

    Hi Mark,

    Just found an F5 function under the View command labelled Refresh... but it is greyed out and I can't seem to find what it is supposed to Refresh.

    Cheers, Bob

    Bob

    In Outlook 2002, both F5 (undocumented) and F9 (documented) will Send/Receive mail. You missed out on the transition. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>
