How to temporally disable account without deleting in Outlook?

Microsoft Outlook allows you to create multiple email accounts inside. After adding multiple email accounts, there will be multiple inbox folders and Sent Items folders created automatically. Then the Outlook will run very slowly when enabling the Send and Receive function. Actually, you can temporally disable a specified email account which you do not use at that time in order to make Send and Receive going more quickly. In this tutorial, we will teach you how to temporally disable specified email account without deleting it in Outlook.

    Salve, e se invece volessi abilitare la ricezione ma impedire l'invio da uno degli account impostati? L'ideale sarebbe non poter selezionare l'account dall'elenco o messaggio di errore nel caso si inviasse in quanto ho trovato come soluzione solo la cancellazione dei parametri del server in uscita e quindi la mail non viene inviata ma rimane nella cartella in uscita.

    I just want to say THANK YOU - I have had an issue updating a password for an IMAP email account that I receive into my Outlook 2016 on my desktop (along with 9 other addresses) - it just wouldn't let me change the password by going via the usual File>Account settings etc. Your insight on disabling took me in the back door (they really haven't updated this bit for may years) to access the account settings in the old fashioned way - and fabulous, it works. I had spent 1 hour on the phone with Microsoft, who told me I didn't have a 'real program'! So, thanks, you've saved my working life...
