Outlook E-mails

  osben 11:17 06 Oct 2005


When I am in a website and click on the website's e-mail address, my outlook opens up as it should do.

I then complete the email and press send and I then automatically return to the website.

However, the email is not sent and I have to go back into Outlook and find it is still in my out box.

I have to click on the email and open it up and then send. This time it goes.

This happens evrytime I send an email via an address from a website but apart from that Outlook operates correctly.

Has anyone got any ideas as to why this happens and how I can correct it??

This isn't a problem, its the way you have set up Outlook express I think.

As I remember there is an option in the settings to send emails immediately tick it and you should be fine.

Its in OE tools menu select options and then the send tab and then check the send email immediately box. Hope this helps.

Now that we have established it's OUTLOOK (only joking) has anyone any other ideas.

However, I have looked at the setup and I can't find anything that relates to this problem.

Get rid of outlook - it caused me no end of trouble - install another e-mail prog like 'encredimail or eudora' - end of troubles !

Outlook/Tools/Options/Mail Set up/Tick box "Send immediately when connected"

rawprawn - I already have "Send immediately when connected" ticked.

As I said, it only happens with email addresses clicked on whilst on a website. Sending emails instigated by me, I have no problem with.

If that is the case, sorry I don't know the answer. In fact I have just tried on my machine and it is the same as yours.

Is it time related or is it that the message is never sent uless you open it and then send?
If time related then: tools/options/mail setup and alter the scheduled send/receive time.

I use outlook myself and can't remember this happening to me. However, I never have a record of messages sent off a webpage
