Vista, Outlook 2007 Mail Sending Frustration.


A

affilik

Hi

Since upgrading to Vista and Outlook 2007 I have a nuisance problem
with sending email.

If I create an email and send it it goes into the OutBox to wait for
me to manually Send/Receive. In the outbox the message sits in italics
with a date and time in the Sent field. When I Send/Receive the
message sends and moves to the Sent folder. This is GOOD.

However if the cursor highlights an email waiting in the OutBox then
that message immediately changes from Italic to Normal and the Sent
field changes to NONE. At this point I can do nothing to get the email
ready to send and it just sits there in the OutBox over time doing
nothing. The only way I can get the message sent is to Copy the text
- start a new message - past text and then send the new message. This
new message will then be in italics with a date and time in the sent
field. This is Frustrating...

Any ideas

Thanks

If you open and close an e-mail message while it is in your Outbox, the
e-mail message won't be sent because you've changed its status. If the
status of the e-mail message has been changed, the title of the e-mail
message no longer appears in italic.

To send the e-mail message, open the message, and then click Send. The
message title changes back to the italic format in the Outbox Messages view.
The next time that you make a connection to the mail server, the e-mail
message is delivered. Sometimes just by dragging the message from the
outbox to the drafts folder is a good cure. Then close Outlook, restart your
computer and try to reconnect and send the message that is now saved in your
drafts folder.
