I accidentally send e-mails about twice a week because of Outlook's keyboard shortcut for Cmd-Enter sending a message. How do I disable this keyboard shortcut?

Go to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard shortcuts -> Application Shortcuts. Now add Outlook/Entourage to the list and make sure that "Menu title" states "Send". After that choose whatever cryptic shortcut you are sure you will never accidentally hit.

Note that you have to quit and relaunch Outlook 2011 for the change to take effect.

Finally! Now please tell me how to get those prematurely sent messages back. – danjp Mar 11 at 10:07
It wasn't immediately obvious how to add "Outlook" - I had to go to the bottom to find "other", then select "Microsoft Office" and only then was Outlook available as a choice. (But thanks for this helpful answer!) – GreenAsJade Sep 3 at 1:49
