Edit an Auto Send/Receive Group

By default, Outlook receives emails automatically at a regular interval (30 minutes). You can change the auto send/receive rules as you need, says the send/receive interval when Outlook is online, and the like.

Note: This tutorial is introduced based on exchange account in Microsoft Outlook 2019 desktop program in Windows 10. And it may vary significantly or slightly depending on the types of email accounts (Exchange, IMAP or POP), the versions of Microsoft Outlook, and Windows environments.


Edit online settings of a send/receive group
