Help with Outlook 2003 please

I have just changed to Outlook 2003 from Outlook Express. I like 2003 but there is one element which I find disappointing.

When you open up OE it immediately downloads any messages waiting for you. Outlook 2003 does not seem to do this and I have to click the send/receive button. Is there a way of configuring OL 2003 so that it downlaods messages as soon as it is opened up?

Go to Tools, Options, Mail Setup tab and tick the Box saying send and reiceve when connected and if you want it to check for you if you have it open for a while you can do so by following the same procedure but pressing Send/Recieve button in the Mail Setup Tab and tick the Schedule an auto send/recieve and type in a number of minutes, in my case i used every 1 minute.

Ahh yes, i see, i misread. But if you do what i also said, that being set it to doing it every minute it should send and recieve as soon as you open it, as it does this for me.
