Microsoft Outlook: Is there a way to send/recieve at a specific time instead of by the minutes

Hello, I want to send/receive all my emails right before I get in to work at 7am.  Right now it only does it by the minute.  Every 5 minutes or 90 minutes.  I want it to automatically send receive at 7am.  Is this possible in any version 2003 or 2007?  Thanks!

Hi, echoEMC2.

There's no built in way to do this in Outlook.  I can script it in Outlook 2007.

You can set a rule to send at specific times in 2007.
Hope this helps

Hello echoEMC2,

Adding to what RobinHuman said, both Outlook 2007 and 2003 contain the facility to delay the delivery of a single message. In Outlook 2007, with your message open, select the Options tab and click on the Delay Delivery toolbar button.

Hope this helps!
