I have had to reinstall my MS Office 2000 Suite after which pressing send/receive in Outlook immediately produces the statement that the requested tasks were completed successfully whereas actually nothing has happened even though I know there are emails waiting to be sent and downloaded. I have checked all the obvious settings without result. Any suggestions gratefully received.
The problem seems to be over but I still don't really know why. I found a second email account listed but not as the default. I had tried making it the default which didn't help matters so I went back to the original. Later I thought that I might as well delete the second account as it wasn't in use and lo and behold the problem was over.
