E Mail send problems

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?
Many thanks

    Outlook 2003, Windows XP .... from one day to the next emails with attachments supposedly don't get sent (stay in the outbox) with the following error message:











    Normal
    0


    false
    false
    false







    MicrosoftInternetExplorer4






    st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) }






    /* Style Definitions */

    mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0;

    mso-ansi-language:#0400;
    mso-fareast-language:#0400;
    mso-bidi-language:#0400;}



    Task 'Andrea
    Lachner - Sending' reported error (0x8004210B) : 'The
    operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending (SMTP) server. If
    you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or
    Internet service provider (ISP).'

    BUT.... most times the email in fact DOES get sent.... which is a big problem as then the receiver receives the email x times because Outlook 'sees' the email in the Outbox as unsent and keeps sending it ... even though the error messages keeps coming up....
    I'm completely puzzled and frustrated!
    Please help!
    Thanks
    Andrea

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.

How do I delete a blocking sent email on my ipad?


This is one way I've found to delete an email stuck in the outbox (which is what it "sounds like" you are asking...)

1. change ya smtp settings so the message defo wont send!
2. send a test email to anyone
3. it will attempt to send but oversiously fail...
4. hopefully the outbox should be listed with 1 message waiting to go out...
5. if not, try going into the Activity Window and canceling the send command, that should show it up...
6. click the Outbox and the will be one message listed...
7. goto View -> then Show Favourites Bar
8. you should see a favourites bar appear...
9. simply drop and drag the Outbox into your favourites bar...
10. if you restart ur laptop or close mail and then the Outbox has disappeard, simply click the Outbox in you favourites tab and woop woop it should appear in the Side Bar

When sending an email, instead of going to the person it was sent to the outbox


That's because you're using a mail system that is on your computer instead of a webmail (Yahoo Mail, etc)
The program will hold onto that mail in the Outgoing box until you connect to the internet and tell it to S"Send All" or whatever it says to send mail now.

My emails are going to outbox without sending to reciver


If you have Offline Gmail enabled, you'll notice that all your mail now goes through the outbox, regardless of whether you're online or offline. This allows Gmail to capture all attachments, even if you suddenly get disconnected from [the] network. If you're online, your mail will quickly be sent along to its destination."
Most times it means you do not have an internet connection... so the emails sit in the "outbox" until gmail has a connection to the internet. Once it does, it will send the emails in the "outbox"

Outlook Express Send Mail Error


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?)

Texts go to outbox but are not sent


Had a similar problem myself (Sony Ericsson W890i) - just a plain old SMS message got 'queued' in the outbox, and all further messages I tried to send got sent to the outbox too without ever being sent.

What I did was delete all the messages that I could from the outbox (5 out of the 6 which had been 'queued'), and the one remaining message that I could not delete I cancelled, sent it to the Drafts folder, and then Saved it (to the SIM). I then switched off the phone, took out the SIM card, put it in my old Sony Ericsson handset, switched that on, went to the Messages folder and deleted this one troublesome SMS message from the 'Saved' sub folder. Replaced the SIM in my current handset, and sending messages thereafter was no problem. Hope it works for you too!
