emails not being downloaded to my computer Outlook inbox

emails not being downloaded to my computer Outlook inbox

I notice that my emails get stuck at the Comcast server for a while.  Sometimes it takes a long time to get sent to my computer.  Is there a setting that will change that situation?

The only setting I can think of would be the time interval you have Outlook set to fetch messages from the server.  Can you get the messages by using the manual fetch or "get mail" function in Outlook?

Re: emails not being downloaded to my computer Outlook inbox

Thanks for getting back to me.  I have looked in "settings" and find no option for  intervals  for retreiving mails from the server.  I do  try the send /receive button  to pull emails from the server and that does not speed thing off of the server.  I do get the emails eventually.  In fact, often times, it is immediate and  I  do get emails promptly.  Other times they get stuck for a while. This does not have me dead in the water.  I do get by with what I have.  Thanks again.
