outlook 2003

I'm running XP and outlook 2003. I have a hotmail account as my default e-mail and outlook automatically connects to retrieve any new e-mails when I open the program. I have added a Gmailaccount to outlook. I can send and receive ok but outlook does not check for new e-mails automatically like it does for hotmail. I have to do this manually through the send/receive function. Is it possible to set outlook to connect to both accounts automatically on start up. I have searched everywhere and can't find the answer!!!

is there not the facility somewhere in tools/accounts options to select 'include this account'?

Well, i use Outlook for one account but i have it set to automatically Send and Recieve Automatically. I do this by going into Tools > Options > Mail Setup (the tab) then press Send/Recieve button, then i nthe window that has opened tick the box which says SCHEDULE AN AUTOMATIC SEND/RECIEVE every (your choice) Minutes.

It should do that for all accounts. "All Accounts" under the GROUP NAME heading are selected in the white backgrounded text area.

Outlook Tools/options/Mail Setup/Send/receive(tick) Press Send/receieve All Accounts Edit and add your Gmail and any other accounts to ALL Accounts with your preferred options

Thanks for the help. "SCHEDULE AN AUTOMATIC SEND/RECIEVE" as suggested by Ade_1 seems to have done the trick. Thanks igr but I had already done what you said but for some reason it didn't connect to gmail automatically.
