This doesn't work. It still does an automatic receive, but not send

This will not work for me. I tried to save an email with no "to address" - to "Draft". I closed the Email Apt and now when I try to open Email apt. it just keeps trying to "Send" the Email, thus "Locking" me out from opening the Email Apt. I need some serious Help.

What a stupid thing - - - - You want me to post my Email address so you can send me an email to confirm my account - - HAY, I CAN NOT OPEN MY EMAIL TO CONFIRM ANYTHING - - -

Stupid "solution" in any case - didn't ask to disable the send receive button, asked to stop send receive on startup only!

Did you ever find a solution? I have emails sitting in my outbox at work that I don't want to be sent anymore. I set up delayed delivery reminders for meetings that were scheduled for last week, but due to the hurricane, those meetings were cancelled. (I haven't been to work in over a week, but will return tomorrow).

This method does NOT work in Outlook 2010. Those settings are for handling emails AFTER the app has started. They have nothing to do with how Outlook behaves when the app is started.

Correct. Our question is about how to turn it off then Outlook starts only.
