Outlook 2010 Setting to Prompt 'Send before Exiting'__

Not open for further replies.


Prior versions would notifiy me that I have email messages in my outbox before exiting the app. I do not want messages sent immediately. So I have that setting Off. I do not want to leave Outlook when messages are still waiting in the Outbox to be sent. That setting in 2007 worked, but I cannot locate it in Outlook 2010.

Thanks for your assistance,

Niranjan I K

Try the following steps:

l Open Outlook 2010 > press and hold Ctrl + Alt + S

l In the Send/Receive Groups window check the check box which reads as "Perform an automatic send/receive when exiting."

l Close the window to apply the setting and then restart Outlook.



That's not what I asked for. I think I was clear about the process I need. I know how to accomplish what you have described.

In prior versions Outlook would prompt me that I have messages waiting to be sent before exiting. 2010 seems to have done away with this feature.
