Windows 10 Office10 e-mail

When I open Outlook to get my email, instead of the mail automatically come to my screen, I have to click on "Send and Receive">"all" before anything comes in.

I have had a problem with my computer and I am wondering whether something has been turned off which has affected the automaticcally upload of my mail. If anyone can advise me as to how to overcome this little problem I will be very grateful.
