At work I'm using Outlook 2011 and OSX 10.10. I just sent yet another incomplete email accidentally with the shortcut CMD + right enter. Is there any way to disable this shortcut? Googling around shows adding keyboard shortcuts into OSX itself but not Outlook. Thanks!


You can't disable it, but you can re-map the shortcut so you're far less likely to hit it.

Open System Preferences, go to Keyboard > Shortcuts (tab)> App Shortcuts (Left field). Click the "+", select "Microsoft Outlook" from the "Application:" list, change "Menu Title:" to "Send," and change the shortcut to something you aren't likely to hit accidentally, such as Shift + CMD + Option + G," or similar.

Close and re-open Outlook. Enjoy not accidentally sending unfinished eMail!

    It does work, you just have to close and re-open Outlook. I'm using 14.5.8 on El Capitan (10.11.3). Thanks Rampant for the fix! – BenCourliss Mar 17 '16 at 11:47
  • @BenCourliss - I'm trying this for disabling Select All (Outlook 16.16 on Sierra (10.12.6)), and I'm having the same issue as user above, even with completely restarting - it adds a shortcut, but doesn't disable the old one – Krease Jan 11 '19 at 20:33
