Outlook 2003 is beginning to wear on me

I'm having a particular problem that only recently started happening in Outlook 2003 and it's beginning to really bug me.
 
Whenever I send an email, it goes into my Outbox before sending. No problem there, right?
 
Well, if I go back INTO my Outbox just to look at the messages, the messages no longer get sent. It's like they think they are "DRAFT" messages. This never used to happen (and I can't think of what's changed unless it was a service pack or something). I have to actually re-open the message, cut and paste it and then resend it as a brand new email.
 
But now, it's even worse. If I am in the Outbox folder, and try to open the email to create a new one (so it will actually send), it automatically looks as though I'm reading it and so it won't send.
 
I'm going to post this to a forum somewhere but if someone off hand knows the solution, please advise. I'm currently running a few add-ons in my Outlook including Lookout, Newsgator and OnFolio (wonder if that's the culprit).
 
I'll keep you posted.

That's been the Outlook behavior for sometime. If you look at a message in the outbox, don't close it. Click the Send button instead. Another option is to setup Outlook so that it send immediately.

Well, that explains CodePlex...

In a move that will be sure to anger open source (or rather anti-paid software, anti-Microsoft open source)  zealots, Microsoft is planning to buy GitHub . A year ago, I mused about why Microsoft would shut down CodePlex and how the world needs competing source code repositories to be strong. I'm not the only one per this Slashdot article  : "...   people have warned about GitHub becoming as large as it did as problematic because it concentrates too much of the power to make or break the open source world in a single entity, moreso because there were valid questions about GitHubs financial viability...." - Jacques Mattheij I will be interested in seeing this play out - whether developers jump ship or not. Have all the efforts Microsoft has made in pushing towards open source be seen as genuine or will all the zealots jump ship or maybe even attack? Microsoft's comment about why they shut down CodePlex referred to how spammers were using CodePlex. Well, GitHub

Attending Southwest Fox 2019 could change your life - Find out how

Southwest Fox is coming up in October and as I do every year, I spoke with the organizers Rick , Doug and Tamar on the FoxShow. Deadlines for Southwest Fox: Super-saver price (before July 1): $695 Early-bird price (before August 1): $770 Regular price (August 1 and later): $820 This year, I took a different approach with separate shows for each organizer but the main message is still the same : July 1st is their Go/No-Go date. Conferences don't talk about this very often. I don't think developers really question if Apple will hold their WWDC in June or Microsoft will hold their Build conference - but that's because those conferences are vendor-led. Southwest Fox is a community-driven conference - it's not driven by a company with an agenda. Listen to the interviews and you can hear how important each of the organizers feel the live connection between speakers and among attendees.

FoxInCloud Stats

FoxInCloud sent this link a while back about their statistics regarding visits to their site: http://foxincloud.com/blog/2017/12/27/VFP-community-lessons-from-foxincloud-site.html What's interesting here is the breakdown of people. Yes, I think it's understandable that the Fox community is getting older. Another factor is the growth of the mobile and web environments taking over development. These environments really do push people towards the newer non-SQL or free SQL/hosted environments but more towards hosted storage options like Amazon and Google. A tool like FoxInCloud that helps MOVE existing applications to the cloud inherently competes with those environments. But FoxInCloud also allows developers to extend their application further by giving them a starting point using Javascript and the basic CSS (such as Bootstrap). If you're not rebuilding your application from scratch, it's certainly a great step forward. FoxPro VFP
