In Outlook, when I am click on send/receive button at that time I am able to receive email.

But when my Outlook is running in the background I am not able to receive email, and the send/receive process of Outlook continues, but doesn't complete all tasks going on in the send/receive process.

I also set automatically (notification of new mail) send/receive process in background.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

In Outlook 2010 (though I'm not sure but it should be similar in Outlook 2007)

(1) click send/receive tab -> click send/receive groups -> all accounts group -> on a new send/receive groups window -> select the schedule an automatic send/receive every n (a number between 1 and 1440) minutes check box.

(2) If you want, you can specify a schedule for send/receive when Outlook is offline. Under When Outlook is offline, select the schedule an automatic send/receive every n minutes check box.
