I can't find the Send button

You've spent fifteen minutes writing an email, and the Send button is nowhere to be found. You probably just need to configure an email account.

  1. Click File.

  2. Click the Info tab if you aren't already there, then click Account Settings > Account Settings, and look for your account on the E-mail tab.

The Send button is still missing

If your e-mail account is listed in the Account Settings dialog box, but you still don’t have a Send button, try removing and then adding the account.

  1. Click File.

  2. Click the Info tab if you aren't already there, then click Account Settings > Account Settings.

  3. On the E-mail tab, click the account, then click Remove.

  4. Repeat steps 1-4 above to recreate the account.

    Tip:  If that doesn't work, try creating another Outlook profile, and then adding your e-mail account to the profile. See Create a new e-mail profile.
