OL won't auto send/receive

My OL 2003 won't auto receive.  Tools, Options, Mail Setup, Send/Receive is 
set for every 2 minutes, yet it doesn't do it.  Of course F9 does....
Any suggestions?
Thanks

2 minutes is just nuts.
It is difficult to determine why automatic polling is failing when you do 
not post your mail account type, connection type and polling settings. If 
automatic polling once worked and now fails, you also need to examine what 
changes were made to your setup before automatic polling stopped working.

In general, here are the reasons automatic polling might fail in Outlook:
1. You have created an unrealistic polling interval. Many users set their 
polling interval to 1 minute thinking they will be downloading mail 
continuously as it arrives. Such settings are not recommended. They put an 
unnecessary strain on mail servers and can create conflicting polling 
requests that can damage your Send/Receive Group or even your account 
settings. 10 minutes is the recommended minimum.
2. While exiting Outlook, you inadvertently set your profile to Work Offline 
(this option is immediately above the Exit command in the File menu).
3. You have a damaged Send/Receive Group as documented here: 
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q312/3/36.asp
4. You have overridden your Send/Receive Group settings as documented here: 
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q320/8/36.asp
5. Your mail account settings are corrupt. Recreate your mail account from 
scratch.
6. Firewall software is blocking your transmission. Disable your Firewall 
temporarily to see if automatic polling is restored.

I'll try the recommendations.  The problem occurred from the beginning of 
setting up as new computer.  The accounts are all pop3, smtp and pop 
settings same as old computer.  Only delta, old comp ran OL 2002, new comp 
2003.  Both xp-pro.  Cable modem and router the same as before. Old comp 
sent/received every 2 minutes, maybe OL 2003 doesn't like that!

Non-Exchange Auto-reply issues in Outlook XP

ATTN MVPS
I ran across this blog post and was a bit intrigued by it. http://www.intelliadmin.com/index.php/2009/11/send-email-from-the-command-line/ It details a .DLL that's available which allows emails to be sent via a command line. It intrigues me because I'm wondering if it would be less prone to fail as opposed to the other techniques for sending an email, such as Outlook Automation. Granted you wouldn't be able to trap any errors from the .DLL, but would it be more likely to succeed even though you'd still have to have VBA code to run the command line. Thoughts? ...
