    Immediate send (Outlook 2003)

    I have been dragged, kicking and screaming, on to Office 2003. I use Outlook for internet mail - ie I am not connected to an Exchange server.
    Having created a new email, when I click on Send, Outlook2003 tries to send it immediately.
    This is a pain, as I produce all my emails offline, then connect to my ISP and Send them all. Outlook2K did not perform this way (needless to say)

    Without using the 'Delay Send' option, which is not the right answer, is there a way to stop Outlook from trying to Send immediately? I just want the email(s) to sit in Outbox until I click Send/Receive.
    Thanks

    If not already done, you can try clicking on Tools, Options, Mail Setup and uncheck the "send immediately when connected" box in the send/Receive line.
    Or maybe your send/receive groups options need changes.

    Oh you <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15> man.
    I saw this option, but parsed it as "When a connection is first made, send anything in Outbox immediately"
    I can now see that it actually means "Whenever a connection exists, send immediately"
    Problem solved.
