    Hello,

    I was curious if anybody knew this. I could not find it anywhere and had never heard of it. Is there a way to temporarily disable an email account? Like a pause button. So if I 'pause' a specific account (I have approx. 6 email accounts in my Outlook, mostly POP3 & Exchange), when I hit Send/Receive it will not be included, but if I 'unpause' it shall be included. Is there a feature like this?

    If this is possible I'd like to implement this in a family members of mine computer. So it must be 'stupid proof' if it is.

    Thanks! :cool:

    Using Office XP.

    I have know sorted all my accounts into 1 but If I remember right...

    Tools
    Send/Receive Settings
    Define Send/Receive Groups
    Make Sure "All Accounts" is selected and click "Edit"
    Select the account in the left hand column.
    Untick "Include account in this send/receive group"

    Hope this helps.
