Sending Email when not logged into Outlook

I thought I would throw this question out to the community and see if by chance there is a way to do this.

When logging into a server for support, I sometimes will right click and use sendto on a file to email it to someone.
-Outlook is not open.
-Outlook is talking to an exchange server.
-Email account is Administrator, and that is how I am logged into the server.
-To have a copy of the email, I do want the email processed through this Administrator Outlook account

The issue is the email does not send unless I open Outlook .   I don't want to open Outlook everytime I log in since it takes a few seconds to start and I am in and out all day long.  I don't always remember to open outlook if I have something to send.

So I was wondering, is there a way to tell Outlook to do the send without opening Outlook.  I guess I am asking if there is maybe a send service (using the login credientials) that can be started that will allow the send to complete without opening Outlook?  

I am thinking this is the way it works by design, but was hoping someone might have a work around.

Thanks Faraz, that was helpful in that it seems to confirm you cannot do it.  I'll wait and see if anyone else has some thoughts before closing the question.
