I have Outlook 2002 running on XP pro on a network as e-mail client. When outlook is opened , new mail is not displayed until send/receive is clicked. I would e-mails to be downloaded automatically as soon as Outlook appears, but I can't find an option to enable this. Microsft have a document which suggests making a copy of the send/receive group, but I've tried this and none of my pcs will automatically download the mail even those with Office sp2. Any ideas?

Go to tools, options, click the mail setup tab, click the send/receive button, and put a check mark in the "Schedule an automatic send/receive every x minutes." I put 10 minutes in mine, but it does check mail upon opening Outlook.

Thanks - I have put this is place on my PC and it does check on opening. I didn't particularly want to increase network traffic by having lots of checking going on every 5 minutes, but setting it for every 15 mins wouldn't be too bad if it has the desired effect. What I would like to know though, is why it doesn't check automatically on startup, whether it's set to check regularly thereafter or not?
