When you click "Check for New Mail," and while the Connecting to Server dialog box is open, Microsoft Outlook 97 appears to hang if you do either of the following:
- Click a menu item outside the dialog box.
- Click Cancel in the dialog box that appears if you have incorrect server settings.
If you press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to display the Close Program list, it does not indicate that Outlook is not responding.
To end the current process and return control to Outlook do the following:
- Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE.
- Select the e-mail service in the Close Programs list, then click End Task.
NOTE: Do not select Microsoft Outlook. If you do, it will quit.
This issue is fixed in Microsoft Outlook 97, Service Release 1.
