thanks for the links JS.
yeah, I know the BB gets the mail pushed to it but was just wondering if there was some more powerful "one shot pull" kind of thing.
No, my outlook is not set to keep mail on server as when I check the mail on my PC I want it gone from the server.
My problem is the PC is not even turned on and the mail is sitting on the server...yet the BB doesn't grab and forward to me.
It only happens once in a while so I will try the reset/reboot suggestion and see if that helps.
