Outlook Not Automatically Downloading Messages

When I hit the Send/Recieve Button in Outlook 2003 all my Hotmail messages get downloaded into it. However even though the "Schedule an automatic send/recieve every x minutes" option is ticked they are not downloaded automatically.

I had similar problems using Outlook 2002 then 2003 to read Hotmail messages to the extent that I actually switched to Outlook Express to read Hotmail and I use Outlook to read/send messages to my 'real' e-mail addresses.

It may seem a bit nonsensical to have two e-mail programs but it works for me.

I also have Mailwasher to filter my OE account because otherwise it would be mostly spam. With Outlook I get little spam and Outlook's own spam trapper gets most of it.
