    I am running XP Sp2 and using OE6 for my email. 3 Days ago i noticed that when I send email, it stays in my "outbox" but the people do receive that emails. Now my "outbox" keeps pilling up with emails and every time send/receive it sends the emails again and again. How can I fix this?:confused:

    Try moving everything you want out of the Sent Items folder into a new folder.
    Then open the OE Message Store and, with OE closed, delete the Sent Items.dbx and the Outbox.dbx.
    New ones will be created next time you open OE.
    Open OE and see if that clears up the problem.
