Keyboard Shortcut in OS X for Microsoft Outlook / Office 365

Sometimes it just happens – you’re pasting something into an email and your finger’s still on the command key – and you press enter. The email disappears – it’s been sent without you checking it or signing it off...

Here’s how to disable it:
  • Go to System Preferences & select Keyboard
  • Press the Shortcuts tab
  • On the left hand side, select App Shortcuts
  • Click the Add button
  • Select Microsoft Outlook from the Application drop down list
  • Set the Menu Title to ‘Send‘
  • In the keyboard shortcut box, hold down ‘fn’ + ‘ctrl’ + ‘alt’ + ‘cmd’ + ‘2’ (or whatever other strange keyboard shortcut that you’ll be sure you never type!)
  • Restart Outlook

Test it by sending (or attempting to send) yourself an email by holding down the Command key when you press Enter in the body of the email.
