When I send an E Mail it goes into the Outbox instead of being sent.
Sometimes I can then go into Outbox and click send and it will go, but other times it still stays there.
What is the problem?

Re: E Mail send problems
Initially all messages you send will go directly to the outbox first. Automatically though it should send after a while. Sometimes it could take up to an hour. If you want it to be sent at the exact moment, just press the "Send/Receive" button and that will shoot your mail from the outbox.

According to: http://vip.chowo.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/jaws/Windows-Live-Mail-2011-Guide.html, check your Outbox: "Outbox. A temporary waiting area for outgoing emails, which is used by all your email accounts"
delete the old failed messages out of the outbox.. delete ALL messages from the OUTBOX.. if they have failed previously or are too big they might sit there, then every time you go to send a new one or hit send/recieve to get new ones, it will try to send them again.
That is because it is taking a long time to send the photos. If you want to kill it off, you have a few options. First off, try to close Outlook. If it fails to close, then you can try to kill it off using Task Manager.
Now, this part is tricky. Once Outlook has closed, you want to get in and delete the message in the outbox FAST! So, try this. Start Outlook and immediately go to the Outbox, select the msg and delete it. If you dont do this fast enough, it will begin to transmit it and you will be stuck with the same problem.
If this does not work , you can try going in to your mail accounts (Control Panel) and disabling your accounts (basically dont give Outlook an account to send/receive from/to). Then delete the msg from your Outbox, then go back and re-enable the accounts.
I've had the same problem, and my way to fix it was to turn of the firewall and check if it worked, and it did.
When I was sure that the firewall was my problem, I gave accsess to Outlook Express manually through my firewall.
I can probably help you with that to, but then I have to know what firewall/anti virus program you use (if you got one at all?)
if you are configuring outlook to a mail server , you should ask administrator what Max attachment limit is. usually there has to be a limit on sending attachments and it differs from mail service provider to other
I think the problem lies with Internet explorer. I was using Send Photos with no issues - upgraded Explorer and suddenly couldn't use it any more - photos would stay in outbox. I had to switch from yahoo mail to Outlook express and then it would work ok.
