Sometimes in Outlook 2007 I am getting emails stuck in the outbox. They are actually sending - and sending, and sending. Infact they don't stop sending until I delete the email from the Outbox.
The emails never show in my sentbox as sent, but people keep recieving emails over and over.
How can I prevent this from happening ?
My problem is similar. I have one msg that sticks in my outbox. It has a rather large attachment. I have tried to delete this msg and also tried to move it to another folder. I have unchecked the "send on connection", but the program still refuses to delete or move. Then I shut down Outlook, but can't open it again and have to restart and then come up in "safe mode" for Outlook. Would really appreciate help.

Re: Outlook 2007 - Emails sticking in outbox.
If the size of
the attachment in the e-mail message is too large, the e-mail message cannot be sent within the time
As a result, the message is sent repeatedly. To resolve this issue, use the
Option 1: Increase the server time-out limit
On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
Click View or change existing e-mail accounts, and then click Next.
In the list, click the e-mail account that you want, and then click Change.
Click More Settings, and then click the Advanced tab.
To increase the maximum time duration for e-mail server connections, under Server Timeouts, drag the slider control.
Click Next, and then click Finish.
Option 2: Compress the file you are attaching to the message
Zipping a file creates a compressed version of the file that is
considerably smaller than the original file. File types that are
reduced the most after zipping are text-oriented file types, such as
.txt, .doc, and .xls, and graphics files that use noncompressed file
types such as .bmp.

As I haven't seen either here in the open forum, or in response to the chat, any indication that your email did not successfully transmit, I am glad to know that we were successful in solving your initial problem (and a few others along the way)!
