I need to configure Microsoft Outlook 2007 running off an exchange 2003 server to send mail as soon as send is clicked but not to receive mail until send and receive is pressed.
Send and receive settings haven't worked so far.
Am i missing something?

I have tried below but i still send AND receive emails through the exchange account. It seems as though its not 'Sending and Receiving' but rather just syncronising folders to the server. With below settings i can still use Outlook and MS Exchange fully functional

This setting will start the automatic send and receive process every one minute.

If you are not able to send and receive mails using outlook, then try sending a test mail to yourself. And see if it gets delivered without hitting send and receive button. You may have to wait max one minute for mail delivery. Also check the status of your outlook connection and make sure that it is not offline...

I tried both your instructions with no luck. I went as far as changing the settings to below but still find that the folders syncronise without any send and receive instruction.

You may keep the options in my first post to force outlook to perform automatic send and receive process every one minute.

Did you try sending a test mail? Did you check your outlook status?

Checked all
1: Outlook connected to exchange and updating folders when connected
2: Send and receive shows no affect on the folder syncronising process. Regardless of send and receive settings emails are sent and received live.

The only thing i have found that stops the sending and receiving is to 'Work Offline' obviously this doesnt help has email won't go out and email won't come in.

My end goal is to make Exchange work the same way and pop and smtp where the email will send straight away but email will not be downloaded until instructed to do so.

You understand what i'm getting at?

Okie... I misunderstood your question.  Just remove the check marks for "Send Immediately When connected" & "Schedule automatic send and receive", and outlook should work as per your requirement. Sorry for the confusion.
