    When I've finished typing my e-mail and hit "send", Outlook will keep it in the Outbox for a few seconds before it is sent.
    How can I keep my e-mails in the Outbox until I have hit Send/Recieve?

    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Outlook 7 - do not automatically send new email

    Hi Watwaat,

    I am using Outlook Express 6.

    First, go to the Tools menu and select Options.

    Then go to the Send tab and uncheck the option for Send Messages Immediately.

    The next time you compose a new email you will receive this warning message :
