sometimes I need to compose and send an email directly from My Computer folders, e.g. My Computer (any folder) , drop-down menu (right-click on a document I want to send---Send option---Email recipient. I write the body, address and push Send button. the message disapears but then when I run the outlook app, the message is in the "Ready to send" folder. and only after I run the outlook app, the message is sent.

the same thing happens when outlook is not running, but I write and send an email after clicking on "mailto" link at any web page.

how to set MS Outlook 2007 so the message will be sent immediately after pushing the "Send" button?

i think it is "normal" in outlook. I was searching options menu and others for settings to change that but havent found anything. so, all we can do is to get over it. Hope MS will fix it in the future Office release.
