Defer Sending emails in OL2010


Outlook version
Outlook 2010 32 bit
Email Account
I think in OL2002 and OL2007 I could send and email and it would go to the outbox and stay there until I went into the outbox and opened the email and hit send again. Can I get the same functionality in OL2010 and if so how can I configure it.:(

That is how it works in 2010 too - but if you have Send immediately enabled, it will be sent immediately.

BTW, no need to go into the outlook to send it - you can hit send/receive from any where in outlook to send.

Go to File, options, advanced - the 7th section down (words in bold text, gray background) is the Send and receive section.
