Outlook 2007 - Emails sticking in outbox.

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.

If the size of the attachment in the e-mail message is too large, the e-mail message cannot be sent within the time limit. As a result, the message is sent repeatedly. To resolve this issue, use the following options: Option 1: Increase the server time-out limit

  1. On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
  2. Click View or change existing e-mail accounts, and then click Next.
  3. In the list, click the e-mail account that you want, and then click Change.
  4. Click More Settings, and then click the Advanced tab.
  5. To increase the maximum time duration for e-mail server connections, under Server Timeouts, drag the slider control.
  6. Click OK.
  7. 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.

Outlook 2007 - Emails sticking in outbox.


Hello, wmoore78! Apparently, for some reason, the initial issues posed in chat sessions have been placed in the forum by FixYa. While this is not necessary in our case, as we resolved your issues, it does allow me to communicate further with you. Please take a moment to look at the comment I posted pursuant to our chat session. I have included a great deal of additional reference material for you to keep on hand, which you may find of assistance in the future.

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)! Additionally, if you could take a moment to indicate that your problem was resolved at a FixYa level by rating this and the chat, I would certainly appreciate it. These ratings are the essential means by which we as experts are ranked and permitted to continue to help others through the FixYa forum. Rating this solution will also close it, to let other experts know that the issue has been resolved and they need not focus attention on attempting to find possible solutions for you. Thank you again, and please do not hesitate to post back through a comment if there is anything further with which I may be of assistance.
