I check task manage and same deal. I close and reopen and it runs detect and repair. After that runs I open outlook again and the circle begins again. Any ideas?

    Outlook express is trying to send a message with a lot of photos attached. It is unable to do this. How can I delete this message.

    If your Email is trying to send as soon as you start Outlook Express, you might try this:
    Open Outlook Express and go to the top menu, click TOOLS then under that menu, OPTIONS. Under the GENERAL tab, uncheck the box for "Send and receive messages at startup", then click OK.
    Close Outlook Express and start it up again. Hopefully this will allow you to delete the Email. Good luck!

    MS outlook2003 problems

    Create a new profile for yourself in MS Outlook 2003 and configure your e-mail account in it.

    Are you using any personal folders (.pst) in Outlook 2003?

    If the asnwer is yes; then were these personal folders created in Outlook 2003 or some earlier version of Outlook? In any case, if the older type personal folders are large in size, these can cause Outlook 2003 to stop responding or freezing.

    Close Outlook 2003; right click on the Outlook icon showing in the startup programs bar and choose properties; choose 'Show Profiles'; choose copy profile and then choose this new profile in the 'Always use this profile' option.

    Outlook 2003 should now hopefully work fine.

    Original sync worked all others failed with 650 and Outlook 2003

    I was ready to give up completely. Uninstalled, reinstalled, nothing worked. Here is what I did to resolve sync errors: 1. Perform a hard reset on the Palm 2. Go to the Palmone folder on your hard drive (C:\Program Files|PalmOne. Look for the Backup folder. Rename this folder Backup Old. 3. Connect the Treo to your computer. 4. Right click the Hotsync icon in the taskbar and click Custom. Change the four Outlook conduits (Calendar, Contacts,Tasks,Memos) to Desktop overwrites Handheld. 5. Run a Hotsync with the Treo. It should sync without errors. If you need to install additional applications you can add them now. This worked for me. I hope it helps with your errors.
