OE 6 problem

  watchful 14:19 13 Jun 2003

OE6 - instead of putting my e-mails in Outbox when typed offline - ready to send next time I log on - it now puts them in Drafts folder.

How can I change it back to its original setting?

Are you clicking 'Send' or 'Save'?

Neither. I don't usually click anything. It comes up saying they'll be sent later and placed in Outbox when I exit. At least it used to until recently.

When you've typed your mail click the 'Send' button, top left.

I'll try that but it doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for.

Up till recently I opened OE, worked offline, typed a message and then when I click red cross to close a message would come up saying this will be put in Outbox for sending when you next connect. Then when I connected it would be sent automatically. It's this option I'm trying to get back.

The option now is: Do you want to save changes etc. and then it gets placed in the Drafts folder.

I can just click file and then send later but I want the original option back.

As far as I'm aware there is no option to change this. I've always had the 'Save Changes' prompt when just closing the message, and then it goes to Drafts. It's just as easy to click 'Send' as it is to close.

I'm with Megatyte on this one.

Whenever I have written an e-mail offline, it has always worked as he says. If you click send instead of close, it goes straight to the outbox until the next time you connect.

I just tried as you suggested and clicking on SEND does bring up the option I want so, as you say, it's just as easy to click on that.

Perhaps the recent OE update altered the settings.

Thank you both very much for your time.
