Exclude account from receiving

I’ve got several POP3 accounts configured in Outlook. One account I only use for sending (someone else monitors the incoming messages and forwards it to the correct person and we reply with the general company account).
How can I tell Outlook not to include this account when receiving?

You can modify this in your Send/Receive group configuration.

  1. You can open the Send/Receive Groups dialog by pressing the CTRL+ALT+S keyboard shortcut or as an alternative use;
    • Outlook 2007 and previous;
      Tools-> Options…-> tab Mail Setup-> button Send/Receive…
    • Outlook 2010;
      tab Send/Receive-> button Send/Receive Groups-> Define Send/Receive Groups…
  2. In the Send/Receive Groups dialog press the Edit… button.
  3. In the left section, select the account for which you want to modify the send/receive settings.
  4. In the Folder Options section you can disable the option for “Receive mail items”.
  5. Press the OK button until you have closed all open dialogs.
