Send Email from Draft Folder


D

DennyP

In Outlook 2007 when I click on an email entry in the Drafts folder, I
can't find a button/command to send that email. In Outlook XP (and
earlier) there was a Send button when displaying the email that could
be used.

I've tried moving the email to the Outbox, but that doesn't send it
either.

Short of clicking on Reply All on each Draft email in order to send
it, what are my other options?

Thanks.

Well I have a great big "Send" button to the left of the To field....
Presumably you can send ordinary emails?

I have the big Send button and the cc: bcc: etc. buttons when I create
a new email. But if I open up an email in my Draft folder those
buttons aren't there.

That's very strange - I can't reproduce that at all. Can't immediately find
anything on Google about it either.

Denny,
Double-click on the item in the Draft Folder. It should open as if a new
e-mail.

if the send button is missing or not working when the message is opened for
editing, try Ctrl+S.

Ctrl+S does nothing.

Right-click the message, choose Forward. You'll have it then.

Absolutely true ... but as noted in my original message, I was looking
for something other than a workaround. By using the Forward, Reply
All, etc buttons I have to play with the To: field and the Subject
field to clean it up. I can end up doing 20-50 of these a day and was
just looking to hit the Send button as I have done in Outlook 2003.

Thanks.

Try deleting the hidden file %AppData%\Microsoft\Outlook\outcmd.dat and see
if that helps.

I've found the fix. Go to the draft folder and click on the email you want to send. This will open the message in the read panel. Below the text of the email to the left you will see "continue writing" and "delete". Click "continue" and then the SEND button shows up.
