We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Microsoft Outlook 2007 ?

Ok I’m at the end of my line with this problem. I use outlook at the office for email & calendar. My domain is through godaddy which pushes emails to outlook and has done so flawlessly for over a year until this week. Suddenly it stopped pushing new emails in, & the only way I can get them is to restart the computer then they all come rushing in at once. Outgoing emails are still going out in real time. WTF? Any ideas are appreciated, thanks, Marc

    My first thought is that it's the communists up to their old tricks again, but then it could be trolls.

    Or just maybe it could be you need to just set up your default email account again. Could have 'glitched' itself in one sector.

    Good luck.

    Any error messages or do you just get nothing? I haven't used Outlook for years but I think there's a way to look at the logs somewhere in the menu. The whole reboot thing is the mystery I see. Normally mail works or it doesn't. I can't see where the reboot figures in. The only thing a reboot does is to clear the DNS cache but I'm trying to see how that would fit in.

    Just as the problem came (out of nowhere), it left, hopefully back to nowhere to stay. I have no idea what happened, but after several days of turning it off at night it just started pushing emails in real time again. I hate computers for this very reason (I don't understand them enough to know what's going on...).

    I was not getting an error message, but when I would click on the send/receive button, that little box would open up & I could see all the emails that were 'in progress' but the little wheel would just keep spinning & they would never complete.

    Anyway, thanks for the replies
  • ZippyLip,

    While this may be late I would guess it would have either been a firewall or authentication issue.   I have my fathers business set up with Registar.com and would never use them again but from time to time I could almost swear their security admins change the authentication and port requirements as there are multiple options which can be changed that will cause the issue.    I would assume you are using SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) this can use either port 25 or 587 depending on the server side security setting.   While incoming mail is either IMAP or POP which can use ports 110, 143, 465, 993 or 995.  A firewall causing an issue with the ports would place a temporary block on the port or a server admin could change the authentication requirements.

    Hope that gives you a few ideas and items to look into.
