Outbox constipated


A

Andrew Chalk

Just yesterday my Outlook 2003 outbox started to accumumulate messages even
though they had been sent. That is, those messages did not get deleted from
the outbox after a successful send.

I deleted the accumulated messages but then the process started again.

What could cause this and how do I fix it?

Many thanks!

This is normal and that is how it works. When you send a message successfully then
it goes into the Outbox. From there you need to delete them

RUBBISH. That's NOT normal at all. A Message should only stay in the outbox
if the message either cannot be sent for some reason OR the message has been
tagged with "send later".
In a normal send the message will BRIEFLY appear in the outbox but as soon
as it's been sent it then is transferred to the Sent folder

From there you need to delete them

No NO NO! If they are still in the Outbox then the OP needs to find out WHY
they are still in the Outbox. It's quite possible (see above) that they
haven't been sent at all.
