Open Outlook then
Tools > Options then click on "Mail Setup" tab
Untick the box that says "send immediately when connected"

Also clicl on Send/Receive
Untick the box "Schedule an automatic send/receive every x minutes"
Click Close
Click OK to finish

When everything else fails, read the instructions.

Dear Rosalie,

Please disregard this post if the above answer helped you. Otherwise, tell me what kind of mail is sent automatically? Is it blank, with any unknown links, or any mails that you already written? When it happens, while opening Outlook or WHEN?

Are these emails actually showing in your Sent Items folder? If not, your email address is probably being spoofed, and the emails are not actually coming from your account.
