Error Receiving Mail in Outlook

There are some settings that could cause receiving mail problems in Outlook.  

Before you make any changes in your mail settings, make sure that other people in your office, or on your network aren't having problemes receiving mail.  If they are, the problem may not be settings on your computer.

Make sure your internet connection is active.  Can you get to different websites?

If you can't do any one of these, don't change settings in Outlook.   Please submit a troubleticket. 


If you can successfully do all of the above, (or as many as you can test):
