Add send/receive button to Home tab


  • Outlook 2010 beta moved the send/receive button to it's own ribbon, an inconvience.  While it can be added to the quick links, this also is inconveniently located.  I tried adding the command to the home ribbon, went through a complex dialog box to do that, only to finally get an error message that you cannot, it can only be added to a "custom tab", missing the point entirely.  Bottom line, please put a send/receive button in a quickly accessed location on the home tab, say in the "respond" area.  Thank you.

  • Why not use F9 instead of the mouse or set outlook to check every 5 - 8  minutes? The QAT has the Send/Receive button in the first position if you need to use a mouse.  (Don't set outlook to check any less than every 5 minutes.)

  • You can add commands to existing Tabs but you have to create a new Group on thet Tab first. You can't change existing groups of commands.

  • You can Move the Send and receive from the Send and receive tab. Customize the ribbons, and drag and drop the folder under send and receive up to the Home tab.
