Send/Receive Status in Outlook 2010

Hi all,

We recently purchased outlook 2010, and have a couple of questions
  1. How do you get Outlook 2010 to display the Send/Receive Status when you click Send/Receive All Folders?
  2. Is it possible to get more color schemes?
  3. Does Outlook 2010 download mail automatically - we have it set to every 10 mins, but folders dont seem to update unless we click on them.

We have three POP accounts set up, so in the navigation bar we have the Outlook Data file, and then the three different accounts below that. Can you hide the Outlook Data file so it doesnt show in the nav bar.

Sorry for all the questions

1. Send/Receive ribbon - Show progress button. Ypou may need to click the pin in the lower corner of the progress dialog.

2. No. Everyone asks that one. :)

3. It should work with POP3 - IMAP behaves as you describe though. If you are using POP3, you should deliver your default account to the default data file - this would leave you 3 data files and 3 accounts. You can also set the other POP3 accounts to deliver to the default pst, if desired. File, Account settings, select the account, Change folder button to select the inbox in the default pst.

If you are in fact using IMAP, no, you can't remove or hide the default. You could add folders to the Favorites list and collapse the folder list under it. IMAP folders should update on schedule too - go to send/receive settings (Ctrl+Alt+S), Edit groups and verify they are configured to update.
Thanks for your assistance - it was that the three accounts had been set up as IMAP accounts...

Changing them to POP3 sorted it out
