The message just sits in the Outbox.

I've setup a shortcut that point to command:  mailto:
What this does is bring up the Send Message window, where I just type 
the text, pick the sender and the message is supposedly sent.  However, 
there is one problem:  the message is actually not sent, but just sits 
in the Outbox folder.  How can I force the message to be actually sent? 
  (Without having Outlook open all the time).

Thanks
