Question about Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 for PC

Forwarded emails hanging in outbox

When I forward emails with video attachments or several large attachments, the email hangs in outbox. I get an error message saying that the email could not be sent. It then attempts over and over to send the email. What is actually happening is the email is being sent over and over but it is never moved to sent items.

I am using Outlook 2003 which was installed on the laptop when I purchased it. The operating system is Vista.

I want my every gmail to be forwarded to several contacts instantly. I do not know how to do it.

Hi, according to gmail you can't auto forward all emails to multiple email accounts.
(From gmail page: Gmail can only auto-forward mail to one address at a time.")

so you would have to do it manually, open each email as they come in and goto forward etc..

Send as attachment email held in 2007 Outlook Outbox

It sounds like the attachment may be to large for her to send via email. Email applications have a size limitation on how large of an attachment you can send. I would try to take the file break it down into smaller sizes and send those as attachments to see if they go through. For aneasy test before going through the trouble of creating smaller files make a word document. Name it test write this is a test document on the document and save it so it has some content in it and see if she can send it. If she can its probably the attachment is too large to be sent and you need to send it in smaller file sizes.

Cheers mate!

Outlook is sending multiple emails

Check your outbox and make sure the email you tried to send is no longer there because outlook tends to try and try sending a previously unsent email message.
Make sure the outbox is cleaned up.
In sending email with attachments, make sure the attachment is not too big that it exceeds 5mb to avoid these type of incidents, as a work around for multiple attachments you can try sending them in a different email message.

Cannot forward an email received by me to a friend with a Hotmail email address continually rejected

Rather than forward the email, cut the contents and paste it into a new email.
Hotmail might be rejecting it because what you are forwarding may contain a virus. Don't forward any attachments with out scanning them for viruses, plus make sure you are sending to an exisitng hotmail account. You may have typo-ed the email address.
Where did this email originate, is it something that has a bazzillion previous forwarding addresses? Good chance it is infected.
