How can I setup an account in Outlook 2002 for sending only? It always checks incoming mail on every account...
I have 2 pop3 accounts but 3 e-mail addresses.

In the account don't set an outgoing sever just set the incoming one.

1st - I want only "outgoing" account
2nd - Entering empty string as incoming server makes the OK (Next) button disabled. Also, it makes an error during send/receive process, if I enter invalid server and account.

Yeah I forgot that when sending messages it checks both outgoing and incoming servers. Now if you just wanted an incoming then what I posted would work. I don't know if it is possible to just have an outgoing account.

I've found it.
You have to create account and enter anything into incoming mail server address and account. Then enter menu Tools - Send/Receive settings - Define send/receive groups - Edit button - Select that account and uncheck Receive mail items
