'07-Outbox hung up


P

Penn

I have a message in the Outbox which won't send and can't be deleted. I've
tried deleting it many times, I tried opening it, got a message saying it
was being transmitted so I disabled scheduled "send/receive" and even
removed the sending account from the "All Accounts" group. I tried exporting
to a pst file then uninstalling and re-installing Outlook but it was still
there even before I imported the pst - I guess the pst import was automatic.

I'm lost. It's a problem because it interferes with sending and receiving
other messages. I use this for my business and it is a serious problem.

No, I hadn't but it so happened that I lost my connection and voila! I was
able to delete the file!!!

Thank you for your help,
