Unhappy How do I stop an outgoing message on Outlook
Hi!
I have a big problem . I sent a too big message on Outlook and it's been going on since the 11th. What do I do to stop it? I tried to delete the message but Outlook freezes everytime I try to do so.
Thanks a million for you help,
Johanne

I found this on a forum for Outlook problems. It appears that you just have to wait or it restarts. Of course, if you are sending the email, you just stop the email, go into the outbox and delete it. I would close the program and then reopen it to make sure it was gone from the outbox...doc

My Outlook program "freezes" every time I try to receive mail. It says receiving message 3 of 8 (for example) and stops at the same place every time.

Chances are that the Outlook program is still working fine. We've seen this several times lately when you have been sent a message that contains a very large graphic file, sound file or even a video file. Outlook will appear "stuck" while the large file is being downloaded to your computer. I've received files attached to an email message that actually took 20 minutes to receive! Outlook is not able to receive the next messages until this message and attachment have been received completely. Do not stop the program even if it appears it has become "stuck". Give it time to receive all messages and files that are waiting.

I keep receiving the same messages over and over. The program says receiving message 3 of 8 and then stops. When I try again, I keep getting the same 3 messages.

This is related to the same issue described above. Outlook does not tell the mail server which messages have been received until it gets to the end of the new messages. If this process is stopped before all new messages have been received, it will start at the top of the list again the next time you try. Do not stop the program even if it appears it has become "stuck". Give it time to receive all messages and files that are waiting.

Did you cancel the outgoing message and delete it from the outbox as well? You gotta do it and that will fix it...doc
