I'm a former Netscape Mail user. When I click the Send button
on an email I've composed, I used to have it sent right away.
The Outbox is a useless function to me, and I want to turn it off
(i.e., I want Outlook to send my email immediately when I click
the Send button, not put it in the Outbox). I looked through the
other options, but none of them do what I specified above.
To be absolutely clear:
I don't want Outlook
sending everything at the end, and I don't
want Outlook sending everything at the beginning. I want Outlook
to send ONLY when I click the send button in the composition window
that I'm typing in, and I want Outlook to send the email immediately
when I click the Send button, because that is when I'm done composing,
and I've chosen to send it...not when I've turned off Outlook, and certainly
not the next time I use Outlook (which is usually once a day at best).
Outlook doesn't seem to be able to handle this according to the Online help
program and on searching the self-help sites, so I've gotten on here to try
to avoid paying the outrageous $35.00 fee for an answer to my simple
one-paragraph email question of how to get Outlook to send emails
immediately when I click Send.
I know I sound snarky, but that is why I used Netscape in the
first place - it did exactly what I wanted it to do. Now that
Netscape Mail is pay-for-play and the program I used is no
longer supported, I had no choice but to go with Outlook, and
that was an expensive change (Netscape was free). Trying to
find simple answers to anything these days is really difficult,
and far too expensive.
Thanks in advance for your help,
