Outlook send email

P: n/a
Max
When you send an email programatically throgh Microsoft Outlook it goes into the
Outbox and stays there. I have an application that opens the email window and allows the
user to type a message and then hit the Send button. After that the window closes but
the message isn't sent like in Outlook Express it goes into the Outbox folder. Is there a
way to force Outlook to send the email in the Outbox folder?

Cheers,
Max

Do you have 'Send immediately when connected' checked within your Outlook
options (most likely found under the Mail Setup tab).

Max,

This is a security feature in outlook. It stores the message in the
outbox when messages in outlook are created outside of that application.
AFAIK, there is no way around this.

Hope this helps.

here is a post about doing a 'send & recieve' from VBscript, I am not sure
whether this will work with your version of outlook:
