Hi I have a website with a customer form in it and on completion of the form it successfully is sent via the (mailto:) method and goes via my already setup MS Outlook 2010 to my godaddy hosting webmail account!!

I have accessed MS Outlook 2010, File, Options, Advanced and changed the settings to send/receive mail to 1min aswell as for Offline.

Q1. Ive now completed the website form again and it will ONLY go if I open up my MS Outlook. Why?

I wish for a customer to not have to physically open up their MS Outlook 2010 and for it to be sent anyway, as obviously the internet connection will be active, so online/offline.

Unfortunately, this has been the way of Outlook for as long as I can remember. Emails will sit in the Outbox until Outlook is opened... I don't thnk that there is a way around it.

Ok fair enough!  Ive tested it and if I wait 1 minute roughly as I have set it, it does go but only if MS Outlook 2010 is actually open.  All good!
