Windows 7: Outlook 2010 downloading but emails not appearing in inbox

Outlook 2010 downloading but emails not appearing in inbox

Hello all,

Very frustrated Outlook 2010 user. It seems like I'm always fixing something.

The latest issue is that new emails appear to be downloading. I get a notification audible notification and a small visual indication in the lower right corner but nothing appears in my inbox.

Is this just a setting issue? I've been playing with my view settings but not having any luck. Any help is appreciated.

Oh, running Win 7 Professional 64

(Microsoft - Please give me my OE or Winmail back.)

Oh, I guess I should also add:

When I see the small visual notification in the lower right window, I can click on it and see the new email. It just doesn't appear in my inbox.

Ok something else that might be noteworthy.

I see all my pass email. Just not anything new. If I happen to remember what to search for I can do a search and it will appear under the "Today" heading. But otherwise the newest email I can view is under the "Two weeks ago" heading.

Ok, after much digging I figured it out. The email account was pointed to a new data file location. What was appearing in my inbox was my default data file.

So I finally have that figured out. Now I have a new problem. When I click to compose a new email I don't actually have a "send" button to complete the action. Come on MS. This is way more difficult than it needs to be.

Can you post a screenshot of your "Compose Email window"?

That might help get an answer if someone has seen the same thing before, or knows what the problem is by seeing it.

Ok, I resolved everything. I couldn't see my new emails because they were pointing to a different data address.

Once I got that resolved I couldn't see a "send" button. As part of my troubleshooting I had deleted my account within Outlook. If the account is not there you can compose a message but there is not "send" button. Once I re-configured the account the "send" button came back.

Same Problem

I did a search for the same Outlook issue and found this forum...I have the same issue as Sharrod did, I'm receiving email but it doesn't show up in my inbox. While Sharrod pointed to the problem, he didn't say what he did to fix it. How do you change the data file location?

Welcome to Seven Forums turk621. I don't use Outlook, but did some searching. I believe he is referring to the data files in account settings

Open, change, or close Outlook data files - Outlook - Office.com

The correct file may be your outlook.pst. You'd click on the correct .pst file and then choose Set as default.
