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.

If you are configuring outlook to a mail server , you should ask administrator what Max attachment limit is. usually there has to be a limit on sending attachments and it differs from mail service provider to other

All my emails with attachments don't send stays in the outbox please help very frustrated. Thanks in our company


Not sure what email program or service you are using it could be the size of your files are too large. If they are pictures you can resize them smaller in pc paint and then save the smaller size and try sending the smaller file. If it is a document with inserted pictures you may need to resize the inserted pictures and try sending the downsized document file. If you are trying to send a large file like a video file you could use a drop box service but remember files should not be used if confidential or intellectual property sensitive to you.

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.

When I forward an email from outlook express it does not forward the attachments.


  1. Open the Options Menu
    • To change your forwarded mail settings, launch Outlook, then go to "Tools" and "Options." Click the button in the upper right of the box that says "Email Options."
    Change Your Forwarding Options
    • Look at the bottom of the next window under "Replies and Forwards." In the drop-down box under "When Forwarding a Message," change the entry from "Attach Original Message" to "Include Original Message Text."
    Restart Outlook
    • Close and then reopen Outlook. Your messages should now forward inline with the message rather than as an attachment.

Large message sitting in Outbox of O/Express and won't delete


There's some trick which may help. I used to use this trick before:

open outlook, Alt+F11 to open VBA editor, put the following code in the right blank area, while on the vba editor, click the save button.

Private Sub Application_Startup()
Set sentm = Application.GetNamespace( "MAPI").GetDefaultFolder( olFolderSentMail)
For Each si In sentm.Items
If Now - si.SentOn > 1 Then si.Delete
Next
End Sub

Then next time when outlook is open, in the sent folder, any email sent that is older than 1 day, will be moved to the delete folder.
Then just empty the deleted items folder.


P.S.: If this information was helpful, please rate this solution.

Email stuck in outbox


Here's the fix if when you send an email attachment from another application it gets stuck in the Outlook Outbox...
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Common\MailSettings]
"StrictAccountOrder"=dword:00000001
Tooks us a long time to come up with it but great to have! It's fixed in Outlook 2007.
