    OK

    disconnected the computer from the network (Internet).

    restart the computer, and go into safe mode by press F8 during the boot process.

    open the outlook and try to delete the file from the outbox.

In Outlook Express, it continues to send older messages each time you send an e-mail. It also does not include them in the Sent file. What can we do? I just ran a new version of Norton 360 2010. ...


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.

good luck

I sent an e-mail with about 30 photos. It still reads ''sending mail''. Cannot delete message from Outbox.


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.

Good luck

Whenever I send attachments like pictures on MS Outllok 2003, the e-mail gets hung up in my Outbox and yet the recepient gets my e-mail about 12 times. I have to go into the outbox the next day and try to delete it many, many times until it gets deleted.I'm using Vista on a new HP system. I hope you can solve this problem that has plagued me for a long time, even with MS Office 2007.

Trying to email pictures through windows photo gallery.Can't delete attempts from yesterday(keeps adding), but when I get to next screen and it says its sending it, it looks like bar begins to move but it...


you pictures is too large that the sending keeps it sending long enough and it slows down since its sending a huge data out to the server. usually it sends up to 2mb ..and usually it takes long and when you keep it usually attemps to send it again. Delete that in your outbox and try to resize the image.

try to right click the picture and click delete. Once you have deleted all the pictures, If the pictures are from your email sent to you... SAVE it in JPEG format to minimized file size. then try attached all pictures to your email and send
