Vista, Outlook 2007 Mail Sending Frustration

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.

Unfortunately however, if my cursor highlights an email waiting in the
OutBox or I read an email sitting in my 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. If I Open the Mail and then Send it
the text remains Normal and the Sent Field stays NONE.

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 v. Frustrating...Any ideas

Thanks

If you either view a message or have addins installed that read outgoing
messages, any time you view the items in the outbox, they will be marked
'read' and will not send.

If you open the message, change folders and then press send, does it send?
(assuming you stay out of the outbox).

This is not an issue limited to Outlook 2007. This has been a problem off
and on with many versions of Outlook. I've never seen a definitive answer,
except the advice that you shouldn't highlight items in the Outbox.
