when i turn on outlook it get all the mail and sends any mail in the outbox but it will not do it again either automatically or when I press send and receive button. If i turn it off and then on it will send and receive one time

Did you tell Outlook how often you want it to automatically Send and Receive emails? If not, try this:

Click on the Send/Receive tab on the ribbon at the top of your screen. In the "Send & Receive" section on the left, click on "Send/Receive Groups."Click on "Define Send/Receive Groups" in the dropdown menu. In the box that pops up, check the box next to "Schedule an automatic send/receive every __ minutes."Fill in the number of minutes you want and click on the Close button.

Hope that helps!
