Chapter 9. Beyond Simple Text Messages > Formatting Text in Messages - Pg. 197

Controlling Synchronization and Send/Receive Times 197 Send/receive groups also are handy for helping you manage different types of accounts. For example, if you integrate your personal and work e-mail into a single profi le, you can use send/receive groups to control when each type of mail is processed. You might create one send/receive group for your personal accounts and another for your work ac- counts. You can also use send/receive groups to limit network traffic to certain times of the day. For example, if your organization limits Internet connectivity to specific times, you could use send/receive groups to schedule your Internet accounts to synchronize during the allowed times. Think of send/receive groups as a way to collect various accounts into groups and as- sign to each group specific send/receive and synchronization behavior. You can create multiple send/receive groups, and you can include the same account in multiple groups if needed. Setting Up Send/Receive Groups To set up or modify send/receive groups in Outlook 2007, choose Tools, Send/Receive, Send/Receive Settings, Define Send/Receive Groups. Outlook 2007 displays the Send/Receive Groups dialog box, shown in Figure 8-10. By default, Outlook 2007 sets up one group named All Accounts and configures it to send and receive when online and offline. You can modify or remove that group, add others, and configure other send/receive behavior in the Send/Receive Groups dialog box. Chapter 8
