I can't take it anymore, so I beg an MVP to please respond to this e-
mail. I've encountered the following problem sporadically for several
years in various versions of Outlook, but it has happened twice today
with important e-mails, to important people, and I'm mad.
Every so often, with no discernible rhyme or reason,
pasting text into
a message body using the CTRL-V function will immediately send the e-
mail (without even pasting the text). No, I'm not accidentally hitting
CTRL-ENTER, and no, I'm not hitting any other keys along the way. This
is simply a matter of having an e-mail open (with an address in the
address field), hitting CTRL-V in the body to paste something from the
clipboard (a URL, some plain text, doesn't seem to matter what), and
having the e-mail zapped from my screen and get sent.
Needless to say, this results in stupid-looking e-mails for
recipient. "Thank you for the interview opportunity. Please have a
look at my resume here:" BLANK
Google searches on both the Web and in newsgroups have turned up only
a few posts about this -- but then, searching for "outlook and ctrl-v
and send," etc., doesn't exactly make for an easy hunt, so who knows
what's out there on the topic. The few references I've found offer no
solutions, let alone explanations.
In fact, at this point I don't even care if there is a solution. I
just need to know what the explanation is. Something this frustrating
cannot remain this mysterious without making it that much more
Thanks very much.
