Windows 7: Windows Live Mail: Send OR Receive?

Windows Live Mail: Send OR Receive?

I have just started using Windows Live Mail (I don't know what version I have, but it just updated, so I presume it is the most recent). I have figured out how to configure Live Mail to "Send Later" and that works fine, so that outgoing traffic waits in the Out box until I click the Send/Receive button. My question: Is there a way to re-configure the Send/Receive button into two separate commands, one for Send and another for Receive, so that both commands are not always executed simultaneously? Thanks.

Dont know of a way to do what you asked, but you can save your work as a draft and send when you are ready.

No. But you may be able to set up an IMAP version of the same account if your POP3 email provider allows it. That way when you click on the IMAP inbox you can view what is on the server without using send/receive on the POP3 account.

Thank you both. (I can't help wondering why Microsoft chose to exclude that option in Live Mail when it had been available in Outlook Express. Oh well.)
