Has anyone ever heard of Outlook 2010 + Office 365 sending emails without clicking the "Send" button?

I have a user that explains to me that his Outlook is sending emails that he saves as drafts, or types out, decides not to send, and closes without saving changes.

I would just like to know if, number 1, this is even possible, and number 2, where to look for a cause if this is possible.

As far as I know, even placing messages in my "outbox" will not send the message, unless you actually click the "send" button.
Thanks,
-Duane

Check this link out to make sure the user does not automatic send/receive configured.

Hello everyone, and thank you for the comments! It definitely gives us something to work off of.

I had the employee check the items you mentioned, and all of the settings are still at their defaults. This employee has not touched any of the send/receive groups or delayed send configurations, so I think that we can mark those two off the list. I did physically verify this on his computer.

Are there any other ideas that you can think of that could cause this?
Thanks,

Drafts are never sent, and auto-saves are never sent.  Only items in the Outbox are sent.  If this is a random event then the problem is between the keyboard and the chair.  Bet you can't reproduce the "error"

User still has the issue, and in fact sent a rather long email CC'ing managers, etc., Friday.
Doubt it's an issue on the Exchange side, so am trying to get his PC replaced.
