Is there a way to do this? I have a 5 minute defer/delay send rule applicable to all messages. I want them to send automatically after 5 minutes, but I do NOT want to download/receive new msgs (only want to download manually, 2x a day and not be distracted by unread messages in my Inbox).

Any suggestions!?


Great site!

I have just started (re)using Outlook with the 2007 release. So far loving it.
My response here would be Outlook 2007 based, so might defer slightly for previous versions.

I would think you would need to turn off auto send/receive. When you want to get new messages, you would have to manually do it by clicking the |send/receive| tab at the top.

Outlook > Menu > Tools > Send/Recieve > Send/Receive Settings > Click Define Send/Receive Groups (Crtl+Alt+S). Once here,
In the bottom half of the pop-up box make sure there is a check next to |Include this group in send/receive(f9).

Uncheck all boxes for 'All Accounts' group.

I just tried it. A delay send went out ok. And Outlook will only fetch when I manually click the |Send/Receive| tab at the top.

Hope helpful.

This should stop Outlook checking for emails

(PS: Any relation to Gerry Rafferty of 'Baker Street' fame? ;-) )
