gmail pop3 with outlook

Guest

i am accessing gmail(pop3/smtp) with outlook 2002 on my XP proff SP2. I have
two problems

1) I have setup such that my password is rememberd by outlook. so that i can
send emails and receive them without entering any login info. But everytime i
start outlook i dont get the emails from gmail. I have to explicitly say
send/receive to receive email.
How can i make it automatic so that whenever i start outlook i receive the
email from gmail without saying send/receive.??

2) If i dont ask outlook to remember my password. then everytime i send an
email it goes to outbox. i have to then go to outbox and click the message
then it asks for my login credentials.
but i want outlook to ask for my credentials when i compose a message from
an email link in an excell cell

any help is appreciated

1) Ctrl+Alt+S to open the send receive settings dialog. Is the gmail account
configured for automatic checking?

2) You can't have it both ways, but there is no need to open the outbox -
just press F5 when in outlook to begin the send process and bring up the
password dialog.

hi, thanks for the tips. but my second part of the question was some thing
like this::

I have an excel sheet with email column, when i click the email address in
that column, outlook compose box is opened using word editor. when i click
send button from there it sends the message to outbox of oultlook and is
closed without asking for credentials.

It is here i want it to ask for some credentials rather than storing it in
outbox. Because now in order to send the message i have to open outlook and
either say send/receive or press f5 as u said.

If somehow i could make it to ask for credentials when i press the send
button in outlook compose box (which is opened using word editor) then
everything is done in one shot

otherwise i again need to open outlook and then press F5 or send/receive
which will be an unneccessary extra step

Outlook must be already open to send from another Office application. This is true for all versions of Office/Outlook.
