Microsoft Outlook 2003 and Microsoft Word 2003

whenever we open a Microsoft Office (2003) Word document and choose Email at the top, the email window pops open, and we fill out the email address and send,
the email ends up in the Micosoft Outlook(2003) Out Box, waiting to be sent,
is this normal, or is there some way of changing a setting, so that when you press send it goes directly to the person you've sent it to
thanks Joan

    Under Tools>Options>Mail Setup is the account checked for "Send mail immediately when connected." ?

    You might also like to check the box where it says "Schedule an automatic send/receive every (5) minutes.
    That should sort out your problem. You can change 5 minutes to whatever suits your time.

    when you choose send it supposed to go Microsoft Outlook first,

    why can't it be sent like regular email, such as Outlook Express, in other words is there any way of stopping the email from going into Microsoft Outlook, since Outlook is the default email program
    thanks, Joan
