Sharyn answered your first question. As to your second question,
go to Tools, Options, on the Send tab, uncheck "Send messages

messages at startup." You may also have to uncheck the next option,
Check for new messages every xx minutes."
Note that Windows Mail wasn't designed to keep messages in the
