Is there a way to suppress the popup when Outlook can't connect to the mail server? The popup that asks for passwords and then shows the failed Send/Receive message? I have Outlook reading emails all day and my VB code parses the emails and throws the records into a database table. If Outlook hangs, the whole process comes to a halt until I manually clear the messages. Can these messages be avoided so that if Outlook times out (or whatever is happening) it just retries until it succeeds? Are there error events I can trap for? Thanks in advance. DOug Shokes.
