Previously, I could use the delay delivery menu in Outlook to schedule emails to transmit days in advance. Now I'm getting in error message saying "Message will not transmit if I close the computer down." Is there a Menu I can access, so I can use the delay delivery menu again even if I shut the computer down?

Have you made a test message for 10 minutes from now, turned off the computer, turned it back on and opened Outlook to see if it sends?

I'm wondering if an update added that message because people had their PCs turned off when the message was supposed to send and were upset when it didn't.

outlook works differently with an outlook server than with a pop or imap account. You must have one of the latter.

Think about it. How would a turned off computer know when to send the mail? Unless it were on? An outlook server does this, since it is never off, but you don't have that.

But they used to do it. I wonder what changed?

Only the warning. The issue I mentioned has always been there.

Wow.

Reread your OP and I really misunderstood it.

So are there two people posting here or one person with two accounts?

Very confusing...
