A missing Send button usually means there is something wrong with the e-mail account configuration that Outlook is trying to use. The problem could be cause by a mistake made when you were adding the account information to your Outlook profile, resulting in improper saving of the data into the settings file. If you did complete the setup w/o a problem, the configuration file for the account may have become corrupted. And if you did not setup an e-mail account to work w/ Outlook yet, your Send button may also be missing in action. If you did configure an account, check to make sure the info. is correct by going to the Tools menu and choosing Account Settings. If you do not see your account listed on the E-mail tab, Outlook has nothing to work with. Try adding your account info. again; Microsofthas intructions for adding and deleting Outlook accounts at bit.ly/9rJ0Fh.
