I have several email addresses that are connected to my Outlook. All new emails appear quickly, within 5 minutes, except from one email address. It usually takes 1 - 3 hours before the emails appear in the in-box. As far as I know the settings for all the email addresses send/receive settings are the same. Can you advise me on how to fix so that I receive emails from this email address quickly? The email address isDT@360MEG.com that is the one that delays populating my inbox. Thank you.

What kind of account is this? POP3? IMAP? Hotmail? Exchange? Something else?

Do you have Norton scanning your incoming e-mail? If so, turn that off (it's not really necessary). You may have to uninstall and reinstall Norton to disable the feature.

How often do you have Outlook checking for new mail on these accounts?

It's a pop account. Email is set to check every 5 minutes. I have 5 email accounts hooked up and they all work fine except for this one. It's really weird.

Try raising your check every xx time to 10 minutes (or longer) and see if it makes a difference. Outlook can be goofy with a lot of accounts and a low check every xx time.

Does that particular email account work fine on the webmail?
