The Mail Setup tab in the Options dialog box.
The Send Immediately When Connected option specifies that a message you create and send is
sent immediately rather than being put in the Outbox and sent the next time a send/receive
operation takes place. If you click the adjacent Send/Receive button, Outlook opens a dialog box where
you can specify how often Outlook performs an automatic send/receive. The default is 30 minutes.
If you click the Data Files button on the Mail Setup tab, Outlook opens a dialog box where you can
change settings related to the data files that Outlook uses to store information (messages, calendar,
and so on). This topic is covered in Chapter 18.
The final group of options on the Mail Setup tab are relevant only if you are using a dial-up (modem)
connection to the network. For most users, the default settings are fine and need not be changed.
To access the Mail Format dialog box, select Tools, Options from the main Outlook menu and click
the Mail Format tab in the Options dialog box. This tab is shown in Figure 7.15.
