Hour 7. Outlook's Advanced Email Features > Working with Send/Receive Groups

Working with Send/Receive Groups

Use send/receive groups to control when and how often your email accounts are polled and whether the full messages are downloaded or just headers. Although many people are satisfied with the default send/receive settings and have just one send/receive group, you can have as many groups as you need to control your email accounts. Send/receive groups are especially useful for travelers because they enable you to create different groups based on where you are.

When you choose to download full messages, you get just that: the full messages, including attachments. You can read, delete, and reply to messages as soon as Outlook has finished downloading your messages.

When you download headers only, you have to download the message body before you can read the message. In most cases, you can delete the message header and the message will be deleted from the server the next time Outlook checks for new mail.
