    Merge to Outlook (Outlook 2003)

    I have to merge an Access query to a Word document and then to email. How do I set up Outlook to not send the email until I have checked to make sure all is well - in other words I would like to merge to the Outbox and send the merged documents manually when I am ready.

    Thanks for any help!

    If you Save the E-mail without Sending it, it should be saved to the Drafts Folder. Test it and see if that is what happens.

    When you merge to email you cannot save first - it just goes to the outbox. I do not know where the save to draft folder is. Can you point me in the right direction?

    Thanks,

    Turn off the "Send immediately when online" checkbox in Outlook and then, just to be safe, unplug the Ethernet cable! Otherwise, those messages may well fly out of there before you get a chance to review them (they will be in the Outbox, as you note).

    You are right, I misunderstood what you are doing. Meanwhile Jefferson has an answer. You might also try creating it in the Drafts Folder and see if that helps. Are you doing this manually or by code? If by code, there may yet be some other tricks.
