How do you know it was not delivered - i.e., did the sender receive a return email notice that it was undeliverable or did the recipient receive anything at all? If it was sent and just disappeared, there may have been a problem with the email address. If an "undeliverable" notice was returned to the sender, there may have been a problem with the recipient's server, email program or virus software.
Outlook has several settings which prevent certain types of emails from being delivered or received. It attempts to block anything that looks like spam. For example, emails with too many attachments, certain types of extensions, large picture files, emails being sent out to too many people at a time, etc. Some of these setting can be changed, but some cannot. You don't say which version of Outlook you are using. If it has not worked when you are sending the card directly from the Hallmark program using Outlook as your default email program, you might try opening Outlook and creating an email from there and attaching the card.
The source of the problem could also be the virus software of the sender or the receiver.
Now the first thing to check will be your firewall settings and see if that is what is blocking the mails and also check and see if the computer is clean from virus. Run a virus scan.
Sending large messages can time out over a slow connection
By default, the timeout is hard-coded to occur at 90 seconds. You can extend this period to accommodate messages that take longer than 90 seconds to send by modifying your Windows registry. Specifically, add the following keys to override the hard-coded timeout values:
Outlook 2002 and Outlook 2003
On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
Click View or change existing e-mail accounts,
and then click Next.
Click your POP3 account, and then click Change.
Click More Settings.
Click the Advanced tab.
Gradually increase the server time-out setting until the issue is resolved.
Outlook has bad memory management, and this happens often. The only way to relieve this is to save the attachments to your computer harddrive first, and then open it, instead of opening it from the email directly.
Its a pain, but its the cost of using Microsoft products.
1. Go the File menu, then choose Work Offline in order to stop Outlook from trying to send all mails: 2. Switch to the Outbox. 3. You now have two options: a. Move the message: you can drag-and-drop or use the Edit: Move to Folder menu item to move the e-mail to your drafts folder. This will allow you to re-open the offending e-mail and slim it down by removing the large attachments before attempting to resend it.
b. Delete the message: this will immediately remove the message from the Outbox and put it in Deleted Items. 4.
If you receive an error at this point that says the message is being transmitted, close Outlook, wait for Outlook to exit (you may need to use Task Manager and wait for the Outlook.exe process to exit), and then start Outlook again and repeat steps 2-3. In some cases, the item may not be released until Outlook has restarted. 5. Go to the File menu, deselect Work Offline to start sending and receiving mail again.
If you cannot open attachments while using the Outlook Express e-mail
client, your security settings may be too high. When you try to
open attachments, you may see the following message: “OE removed
access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail.”
To check your e-mail security settings:
1. Open Outlook Express.
2. Click on Tools in the menu, and scroll down to Options.
3. Click on the Security tab.
4. Make sure “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could
potentially be a virus” is UNCHECKED.
5. Click on the Apply button. Click on OK.
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
