Finally after all these years I have a Mac again!
And I installed Outlook. But there is an issue:
There is no outbox. I depend on it on my PC, to quickly keep a bunch of responses. As I read emails about or further think about a situation, my thinking may change and I can go into the outbox and edit or delete emails I've composed. But on the Mac it seems like Outlook is unavoidably like Gmail, when you send an email, it's gone.

Any solution for this? Any help so appreciated in advance.

Happy to have a Mac again, and be in this forum again. My last Mac was a iici.

I use outlook 2011 and the outbox is actually " Sent Items" I have every sent email in there since 2000.

Thanks but it's not the same thing. I have my sent email in sent too. Outbox holds mail you intend to send, but has not been sent yet, and will sit there not sent until you click on send/receive.

I don't know whether it's available in older versions or not, but in Outlook 2016 you can open Window > Sync Status and you'll find your email there where you can cancel it. Easy peasy!
