Yep - that is the annoying norm.

Now that we have documented the problem so well - let's see if people can suggest settings to try and remedy the issue. I don't think that it is an offline/online issue as my videos show that outlook will communicate with the e-mail servers while running in the background - it just will not honor the "sent before exit" setting while in that mode :-(

The work around that I suggested in my rather wordy post is to never close Outlook.

The first thing I do when I am on the computer is to check for emails but usually I turn Outlook off after the email session. Well I will change my routine a bit and not turn Outlook off until the computer session is over. Thanks
