Outlook 97: Sending Mail on "Send" click

Is there a way to configure Outlook to send email when I click "Send" not when I have to click "Check for New Mail"?
I have looked high and low but can't find an option to do that. Am I missing something or can it not be done?

Thanks in advance,

Yes, in your tools options you should be able to set up your mail to send immediately.

Yes,  Tools-->Options-->Mail Delivery-->Mail Account Options-->Check Send messages immediately...

This should do it for you... If you don't have a Mail Delivery tab, make sure you have Internet Email installed there in Outlook..

I have Internet E-mail installed in Services and configured for my Internet Email account. I do not have a Tools -->Options
-->Mail Delivery -->Mail Account Options -->Send messages immediately setting. I can get as far as Options but there is no area for Mail Delivery. Can you provide more assistance?

Thanks so much,
