Excel 2010 "Save and Send" only sends when Outlook is opened. Is this normal?

One of our users is using Office 2010. I am not completely familiar with all the in's and out's of the new edition and could use some insight.

When she uses the "save and send" feature in Excel, it opens up a new Outlook email with the attachment. She clicks send, but the mail is not sent until Outlook is opened. She does not use Outlook on a regular basis, preferring AOL's web interface instead.

Is there a way to make it send automatically, or is this "the way it is".

Thank you in advance.

See Ron DeBruin's VBA methods, which will send regardless of whether or not Outlook is open:
