Outlook 2007 emails stuck in the outbox

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.

    When I send an email that has a lot of recipients, the message gets stuck in the outbox and sends repeatedly to just a few recipients. What to do?

    Outlook 2007 Windows XP - Trend Antivirus Internet Security. Outlook starts sending at high speed repeatedly.

    Today, I had a large file stuck in the Outbox and it sent out the same message 21 trimes. Finally, someone called and I deleted it. This has happened before.

    Same problem but the file is not that large -- 3 megs. I am sure my ISP doesn't have a limit this low. Is there any way to increase the allowable attachment size through Outlook 2007. i have Vista and am using Trend PCcillin.

    I have the same issue, if I disable antivirus while the message is being sent, it sends the message ok.

    I have same problem. I have a message stuck in outbox and the only way I am able to "fix" it is to delete the account that it was sent from.  Doesn't really solve it, but now at least the person doesn't receive 30 copies a day of the stupid message.

    did what you said above but tells me its transmitting and won't let me open or delete and I am off line. It's frozen in my outbox and won't let me delete. HELP! It's happened because I am trying to send an 11 page scanned pages but it keeps holding my email hostage in my out box.

SOURCE: Outlook 2007 - Emails sticking in outbox.

My problem was an outlook email sometimes usually with an attachment getting stuck in outbox and sending multiple times to users. very embarrassing, some users getting hundreds of emails. Bloody M$ outlook. Tried turning off antivirus - no change. tried setting up another profile, same problem. Once it's stuck can get email deleted using techniques described in posts. i.e work offline, cancel send / recieve etc. but didn't solve problem of getting stuck and sending multiple copies, happens on semi - random almost consistent basis.

Only solution to have fixed problem was as described in one post here, change outgoing server timeouts. go to tools->account settings-> choose account->change account->more settings->advanced tab->change server timeouts from 1 min to 5 mins or longer.

I believe the problem is with ISP and random variances in broadband connectivity. Have noticed my ISP doesn't provide consistent speed and occaisional dead connectivity spots which would explain why one needs to expand timeout settings.

Cheers BC
