Chapter 2. Outlook from the Beginning > Working in Online and Offline Mode

Working in Online and Offline Mode

Outlook can be used in both online and offline modes. Outlook is online when it is connected to a mail server for sending and receiving e-mail. If you are using a cable modem, DSL modem, or network connection to send and receive e-mail, you are always connected to the Internet and can choose to always use online mode. If you use a dial-up modem, you are connected while your modem is online using a telephone connection.

The default setting for Outlook is to send e-mail immediately when connected. Outlook can also be configured to send and receive e-mails automatically, at scheduled intervals. If you are using a dial-up modem, you can configure Outlook to dial your ISP and connect to your mail server automatically. If you are using an always-on connection such as cable modem or DSL, no dial-up is needed for Outlook to send and receive e-mail at the scheduled interval or to send e-mail immediately.
