Send it now, darn it

A colleague asked me why Lotus Notes was no longer sending emails immediately when he was working from a replica copy of his mail file.

It was a most excellent question to which I didn't have an immediate answer. However, thanks to my social network ( actually knowing the man who knew and finding him on Sametime ), I was able to help solve it.

It turned out to be a location preference/setting, which can be set as follows: -

a) Choose File -> Preferences -> Locations
b) Edit the location that you usually use
c) Navigate to the Mail tab
d) Set "Transfer Outgoing Mail If X messages pending" to 1
e) Click OK to save the location change
f) Click OK to save the preference change

Hope this helps someone as it helped Mike and I

( with thanks to Chris for his most timely and excellent help )
