Mail stuck in outbox, can't delete,won't send, retards send/rec.

I recently scanned 6 pages of text to e-mail, I was asked about the format,
it was .bmp, a mistake as it then attached the .bmp to the e-mail taking 84
mb of memory. Once I noticed this after beginning send I attempted to abort
the send. It stopped the send. Next I tried deleting, couldn't do that as
the message appeared "can't open, Outlook has begun sending". Well, it
really wasn't as I went to bed and awoke to find it still in my outbox.
Tried sending again, same result.

Next I tried to delete, no luck, tried dragging to delete folder, no luck.
Right click, chose delete, no luck. It will not go away.

The worst part is every time I send an e-mail it tries to send this bad one
first, therefore retarding all my outgoing messages with a long delay, and
because of that the incoming messages are affected too.

How can I get rid of this problem?

In Outlook do File-Work Offline. Close Outlook. Restart Outlook. It should
start in offline mode. Try and delete it then...
