Can't receive mail on my Outlook 2003 wireless

by Cottonwoodian / October 29, 2005 7:58 AM PDT

I have an isp with an mail accout and two email addresses. My desktop wired into the wireless router has the bundled version of Outlook 2002. My new wireless notebook came with Outlook 2003. I set up the notebook email and the setup test states it can send and receive email from my isp. My isp does send it back but I do not receive it.

I tried setting up a second account on the notebook 2003 but the Microsoft Knowledge Base states us the "deligate" tab. There is no deligate tab anywhere on the Outlook setup.

I cannot transfer email from one to the other because of licensing agreements on bundled software.

Is there a way to actually receive email on my wireless notebook?

Sorry, but I am not sure I fully understand your problem.

You use an ISP on your desktop and this ISP allows you to have two email accounts.

You now have a notebook, and have set up Outlook on the notebook with the same email account settings.

Have you set up a network connection on the notebook for your ISP?

What I mean is, are you able to surf the internet on your notebook using your existing desktop ISP?

If not, you need to set that up first. The notebook needs to connect to the ISP before it's Outlook can start receiving emails.

Or have I missed something?

Yes the wireless isp account is on and the Outlook 2003 on the notebook tested "completed" for days with a message sent to the isp and received back. However the Notebook Outlook 2003 does not receive them even it the desktop is closed.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
