Hi there. I have four IMAP email accounts, all of which are in my Send/Receive Groups list. Three of these accounts are doing their send/receive as scheduled, however my default account seems to only update when I manually select the relevant inbox and click 'Update Folder'. So, for three accounts I get scheduled updates, but for the default account I need to do it manually.

Any idea why this is or what I need to do to fix it? Alternatively, a VBA code to select the specific folder and force the update would be an acceptable workaround; I would park the code in 'ThisOutlookSession' and create a button for it in the ribbon.

Any help or advice would be appreciated!
 
Try splitting the Send and Receive groups into 2 groups and see if it syncs better. Set one group to check two accounts every 5 minutes and the second group to check the other two every 9 minutes. (You can use higher numbers but should use two different odd numbers so the S&R doesn't overlap.)
