When trying to edit my Send/Receive settings no dialog comes up to actually edit my Send/Receive settings for my configured accounts.
How can I get to this dialog?
You can access your Send/Receive Settings via;
- Outlook 2007 and previous
Tools-> Options-> tab Mail Format-> button Send/Receive Settings…
- Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016
tab Send/Receive-> button Send/Receive Groups-> Define Send/Receive Groups…
If pressing the Edit… button in that dialog doesn’t do anything, it is likely that your current Send/Receive settings got corrupted in some way. To recover you can rename the srs-file for that mail profile to .old when Outlook is closed.
Locating your srs-file
By default you can find your srs-file in the following location;
- Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\
- Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10
To easily locate the correct folder for you, you can also use OutlookTools (free!)
Note: When you have multiple mail profiles configured in Outlook, you’ll have multiple srs-files in that directory; one per mail profile. They are named after your mail profile;
