my other computer died but I was able to save my .PST outlook file. I installed Outlook 2010 on the new computer and tried to set it up to do what it had been doing before - which is receive my forwarded gmail accounts.
Everything works except it won't receive. I can send, I have all the contacts, tasks, calendars etc, but no receiving of mail. Any suggestions?
Are you working over IMAP or
Are you working over IMAP or POP3? I would advise to double-check the account settings, since sending mail works via a different server than receiving.
I have checked over and over again...everything seems correct. Am not using an exchange server, just regular internet from home. Very strange.

You say you can't receive "your forwarded gmail accounts".
Do you have an @gmail.com address forwarded to [email protected] address, and you are trying to setup the @cablecompany.com address, or are you trying to setup the @gmail address to check POP3 directly from Outlook?
What are the SMTP and POP servers you have listed in Outlook?
Thanks everyone - am good to go
Wow, weird things happen in software coding.
TIMR, I was pop.gmail.com and smtp.gmail.com....wasn't the problem
Oddly, I also could not search my contacts or emails... and when I tried I received an error message about Outlook was still indexing my items...
So I did a search on that phrase and eventually learned about different kinds of safe modes to start and test Outlook functions.
I learned that some add-ins were creating conflicts, so I eliminated them and miraculously, all my emails began downloading to Outlook & I could search directly in my contacts, but not from the email page. So a little more digging led me to 2 more add-ins, both from iTunes 10 and once I removed them, all was good.
