What To Do When You Are Not Able To Receive Outside Email In Outlook?

As we all know, the Outlook program from Microsoft is capable of receiving email messages from different outside sources. For example, the users can make use of the Outlook program to get all the email messages from their work account, Gmail account and the Hotmail account. Sometimes the Outlook program will not be able to gather the email messages from one or all of these email accounts. This issue can be resolved very easily if you know the steps to be done.

The users of the program will be able to fix the issue by following the Omnitech reviews that are discussed below in this article. You may follow these OmniTech Support guidelines religiously to prevent any errors.

  • Open the Outlook program by double clicking on the desktop icon. In the interface of the program, click on the Tools tab that is located on the top of the window. A drop-down window will be opened and from this, you will need to open Accounts. 
  • You will now need to click on the Mail tab and will be provided with a list of accounts that are set up with the Outlook program. 
  • Now you can double click on the account in which you experience trouble sending the messages. 
  • Select the General tab and then double check all the email settings to ensure that the correct email addresses are in place. Understand that just a typographic error in this place can prevent you from sending or receiving email messages. 
  • Select the Servers tab and then check the Account Name. Ensure that you are making use of the full email address. For instance, if your email id is, you will need to type the full email id under Account Name, not just janedoe. 
  • Log in to your web based email account. You will need to go through the mailboxes and then delete those email messages that are obviously spam. You will also need to delete those email messages that do not have a From address. The spam email messages will cause the Outlook program to crash and hang. This will prevent the Outlook program from receiving any email messages from the outside webmail. 
  • Now you will need to check the settings on any of the antivirus or firewall programs to ensure that it is not blocking the Outlook program.
