Microsoft has some answers for you
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/delete-a-message-stuck-in-the-outbox-HA001139411.aspx

Or try this
Method 1 Open the message from the Outbox and close it again. Now select the message and press DELETE

Method 2 Put Outlook in offline mode. To do this go to File-> Work Offline. Now restart Outlook and see if you can delete it (you can try this in combination with method 1). Don't forget to put Outlook back On-line again

Most of the time, size limit issues are caused by attachments. 95% or more of the time McAfee Antivirus is the culprit.

Every time you update Adobe Flash, they secretly try to install
McAfee (because they get paid to do so). McAfee imposes a 10MB
total size limit, which is easy to pass with an attachment.
McAfee installs, even if you already have antivirus.

If you are familiar with 'Programs and Features' in
Control Panel, I would uninstall McAfee. Most of the time,
that is enough of a change to allow your email to go through.

Next time you are prompted to update Flash, you have to
click for a Custom Install, and then UNCHECK the box that
tells you adobe is about to install McAfee.

If you are concerned about Cryptolocker / Crypto Wall,
I would install the free version of Avast, and then
upgrade to ther paid version through the program, for $19.
AVG won't stop it, neither will Symantec-Norton.
(others may work, just familiar especially with these three)

As a final summary, I have seen McAfee be the culprit
100's of times for stopping emails. If you need to get
large files to people, the free version of Dropbox,
and most other Cloud storage options, allow you to
email a link to the file instead of having to attach
the file to an email.

Even if you have never used 'The Cloud', it is a lot
easier than you may think it is. Easier than managing
multiple email accounts.

I have five businesses that have all been featured in
the news (for good reasons :-), and one of them manages
over 9,000 windows computers, and about 2,000 Macs.

All the best to you.

Sent Messages are stuck in Outbox and many copies are sent


You may have removed some items from your sent box as you are saying but it still may reflect a size larger than its capacity.

Go to tools-options-maintenance-store folder: Copy the location in there and place it into your "run". this will open up the folder for the .DBX files. If "Sent Items.dbx" is larger than 2G there is your issue, you have no more space to hold sent items, hence it is going out but not moving to the "sent" box.

Texts go to outbox but are not sent


Had a similar problem myself (Sony Ericsson W890i) - just a plain old SMS message got 'queued' in the outbox, and all further messages I tried to send got sent to the outbox too without ever being sent.

What I did was delete all the messages that I could from the outbox (5 out of the 6 which had been 'queued'), and the one remaining message that I could not delete I cancelled, sent it to the Drafts folder, and then Saved it (to the SIM). I then switched off the phone, took out the SIM card, put it in my old Sony Ericsson handset, switched that on, went to the Messages folder and deleted this one troublesome SMS message from the 'Saved' sub folder. Replaced the SIM in my current handset, and sending messages thereafter was no problem. Hope it works for you too!

Text is stuck in my outbox


I had this same problem. Deleting and clicking "yes" at the warning screen would not remove the message from my outbox and the message kept resending for days.

Solution: In the Outbox, click "Menu" > Empty Deleted Items. Click "yes" at the warning. The message should now be gone from your outbox and your text buddy should now be able to regain sanity.

T-mobile credited back the resent text messages when I called them.
