    Hello all,

    Whenever I send a file attatchment of any noteable size ( above 500k), It stays in my outbox and appears to have never been sent. The person(s) I am sending it to tell me they recieve it multiple times, even though it appears to have never been sent from my end.

    Because sending large files may not be as immediate as you might think (depends upon your speed of Internet connection) you may be noticing the delay it does take. In your impatience you may be just sending it multiple times, thinking the first time did not go (whereas it was just in the process of doing so) you send it again, and perhaps again.

    Try waiting a bit longer.

    Actually I am as patient a person as there is. I send e-mails with large attatchments just before I retire for the night, and I only send them once.

    I have seen anti virus plug ins that scan outgoing mail cause that behavior.
    The message has been sent,but stays in the outbox, sometimes until you manually delete it.

    To see if that is the problem, open Outlook in safe mode.
    Start/run outlook.exe /safe

    This opens Outlook with no plug ins loaded. Then try to send a large email. If it sends and leaves your outbox, I would try going into the settings of your anti virus, and disabling outgoing mail scanning.

    IMHO, if incoming mail is being scanned, and you have real time protection, outgoing scanning is not a priority. If you are sending out a large file, and have any doubt, you can always manually scan it before sending.
