Outlook 2002 Send/Receive error

By acanovali ·
I am having trouble with manual send/receive. When I click the send/recieve button in Outlook or press F9, I get a message that just says "The operation failed". I have my outlook set to automatically send/receive emails every few minutes, and that is working. I am able to send out messages and I am recieving them, but I just can't do it manually. This isn't an immediate concern since I am getting my emails, but I don't understand why it's not working when I do it manually. Any help?

What does the error say?

Can you give us the specific error, not just the fact it won't work with the manual send/receive button?

Have you checked your account group settings? If you have more than one account and the extra account(s) are set so they don't automatically send/receive, they're only accessed when you use the manual send/receive button.
