Emailing through Outook from Excel


John Calder


I run Outlook 20003, Excel 2000 and WinXP

puts an email into my Outlook OUTBOX. The problem I have is that I then have
to open Outlook and go into my OUTBOX and press the send/receive button
before this email is sent.

let Outlook know just to send it without me actually having to go into
Outlook and press the send/recieve button?
