How to set "check mail" times for Outlook 2010

Want to set some accounts to check for new mail every ten minutes, others every 30 minutes, others not at all (only manually). Can't see how to do this. Even TBird can do that. What am I missing?

It is quite easy, in fact. In Outlook you do this using so called Send / Receive Groups. A group can include just one or multiple mail accounts.

You can define Send / Receive Groups as you wish by following these simple steps:
  • On ribbon, select Send / Receive > Send / Receive Groups > Define Send / Receive Groups:

  • Click New to create a new Send / Receive Group:

  • Give the group a name, click OK:

  • Select account you want to include in this group on the left pane, select Include the selected account in this group. Do this for each account you want to add in this group, finish by clicking OK:

  • Save settings by clicking Close button
That's it.

Notice that you can also send / receive each group manually:

Belated thanks...

...for the comprehensive and very helpful reply. I haven't been able to really implement Outlook yet, due to outside factors, but this will help me set it up when I do.
