    Outlook 2007

    I tried to send an e-mail, not realizing that I had attached too many things. I don't know how I did it, it just attached 20 files instead of the 2 I was trying to attach. (Probably my mouse battery dying and made the mouse glitch, selecting all the files as I was hitting OK.)

    Now this 192Mb message has been stuck in my Outbox for 5 days and it's preventing other messages from sending. I have tried the following.

    Sending it. (Duh)
    Deleting it from Outbox.
    Cancelling the send.
    Opening the E-mail itself, (will not because it currently sending)
    Moving the e-mail to another folder.
    Restarting Outlook.
    Restarting my computer.
    Praying.

    I am receiving messages fine, and when I use the webmail versions of my e-mail, I receive a copy of all e-mails I send into my inbox. Please help me.

    There should be an option under the FILE menu to work offline. Trying deleting the email while in Offline mode.

    Rollin

    FIXED! Oh my gosh, I feel stupid that I didn't think of that. Sigh. Thank you so much.

    I too had the problem. I dont remember how but I was able to remove the message from outbox. Problem is Outlook begins to process tasks but stays in "sending" even though there is nothing in outbox. Dont know what to do. Can someone help?
