Outlook 2003: Email sent from within MS Word 2003 won't get sent until Outlook is opened

Good Morning,
      We are running Office 2003 Professional with latest patches. My problem is that when you are in an MS Word document and you hit "send to mail recepient as an attachment", the email doesn't actually get sent out until you open Outlook. The message will show up in the Outbox for a split second then get sent out.
     I tend to think it is related to us using Cached Mode with Exchange 2003.

Has anyone had this problem with Office 2003?

Thanks in advance!

This is a default behaviour. You need to have Outlook open when sending out e-mail from Office Apps

It is also in XP, I think it is the behavior as designed by MS.
