Sending Email's in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007


K

Ken

I recently installed Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 and it runs almost
perfectly, and the part that doesn't work is probably my fault. When click
send, the new email goes into the Outbox and I then have to go into the
Outbox and select the email then click on Send/Receive to send the email.
When I use Windows Mail after clicking send for a new email it also goes into
the Outbox then is automatically sent, and I don't have to do anything else.
Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong, or how to correct this
annoying problem?

Have you tried clicking Send/Receive without opening the Outbox? Have you
defined the send/receive interval in the Define Send/Receive Group dialogue?

I have a question about this, Brian. If you don't define an interval and
just check the top item, don't they send instantly as soon as you click the
send button?

Do you mean the "Send immediately when connected"? They do for me. If it
doesn't happen for you, try deleting the .srs file (while Outlook is closed)
in the folder %AppData%\Microsoft\Outlook. If that doesn't work, try a new
mail profile.

No. you need to hit send/receive or set an interval... and you will need to
have outlook open. If outlook is closed and you use file, send from another
application, it will not send until you open outlook.

I thought I recalled trying this and as long as "Send immediately when
connected" was checked, I didn't need to click Send/Receive or have an
interval set. I just tried it again to make sure and it's true; I do not
have a send/receive interval defined and I did not need to click
Send/Receive in order for Outlook to send the message, as long as I have
"Send immediately when connected" checked.

It all depends on the version of outlook and the type of accounts in the
profile....

Under what conditions do you find it doesn't work that way?

Brian,

I also have Outlook 2007. Since I wrote my first question in this
thread/line, I think I've got this particular situation figured out. I have
send immediately checked, and my messages now appear to go as soon as I click
the send button. Being fairly new at this, I am still learning.

I'm sure all of us newbies appreciate you MVP's here to understand our
newness and answer what might sound like silly questions to you.

Thanks to all of you for all your answers.

I'm having the same problem but do not have the option to send Immediatly.
All mail to be sent goes to an outbox until the send and receive is pushed.
Any new incoming does not come in until the send/receive is pushed. It has
not worked this way in the past....what changed and how do you fix it?

Ctrl+Alt+S to open the send and receive settings dialog. Is the option to
check mail every xx min enabled? (We recommend 8 -10 min frequency.)
