    Welcome to the forum!


    Is the server Gmail? I guess those have a deferred delivery time else they would send when Outlook opens.

    Let me describe from the beginning,i found and modified excel to send multiple mails to different peoples with personalized attachments

    Step 1:
    Outlook - enable Work Offline icon

    Create messages

    Run code to move messages without attachment from outbox to deleted items

    Sub Cleanmssg() 
        Dim selectedFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder 
        Dim targetFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder 
        Dim itms As Outlook.Items 
        Dim msg As Outlook.MailItem 
        Dim i As Long 
        Dim msgAttachs As Outlook.Attachments 
        Set selectedFolder = Outlook.GetNamespace("MAPI").PickFolder 
        If selectedFolder Is Nothing Then Exit Sub 
        Set targetFolder = Outlook.GetNamespace("MAPI").PickFolder 
        If targetFolder Is Nothing Then Exit Sub 
        Set itms = selectedFolder.Items 
        For i = itms.Count To 1 Step -1 
            If TypeName(itms.Item(i)) = "MailItem" Then 
                Set msg = itms.Item(i) 
                Set msgAttachs = msg.Attachments 
                If msgAttachs.Count <= 0 Then 
                    msg.Move targetFolder 
                End If 
            End If 
        Next i 
    End Sub

    Outlook - disable Work Offline icon to start sending(but messages are stuck and they can be sent when you open each and press Send button)

    Server is microsoft exchange server 2003 or 2007

    I am not sure about all that or if it is needed.

    Is the problem that you create Outlook mail, Send, but it goes to Outbox instead of sending out? If so, why not have the macro open Outlook before Send?

    Next time, please make your subject line more descriptive.
