Task Manager is your friend :-)
Outlook 2007 (and maybe other versions) seem to operate differently when "launched" versus when running in the background.
The video bellow illustrates what you are describing (I think). Process monitor is setup to show any network traffic generated by Outlook. There is no send/receive activity after I press send in the test message. I thought that enabling "Perform an automatic send/receive when exiting" would fix the issue - no joy.
I guess that you will just have to keep Outlook "launched"... or maybe others know of a fix for this annoyance.
BTW, as you can tell from my file naming convention, I made 4 videos. In the first one, there was no send/receive traffic before or after I hit send on the test message and I failed to show the network traffic within process monitor after launching Outlook the normal way. In the second one, I had trouble with the junk/test e-mail account - they made me reset the password due to "unusual activity" (repeated test e-mails to a bad domain?). I got things recorded as desired in the 3rd video (the first video in this post) - but by then the test e-mail account was temporarily suspended. So, I setup another junk/test e-mail account with another provider - hence the different e-mail servers shown within process monitor for the 4th video (the second video in this post).
If I get time - I'll test with Outlook 2010.
Edit2: Outlook 2010 fails to send just like the videos above show
(even with "Perform an automatic send/receive when exiting
" is checked)
odd thing though - I could not capture any network traffic for Outlook 2010 via process monitor??
