    Outlook Express 2003 - will not send emails with attachments (specifically Word or Excel documents, it seems that pdf's, jpeg will go)
    Operating on XP - fully updated.
    Emails without attachments go when at the head of the queue - no problem
    Any email with an attachment at the top of the queue just sits there trying to send.
    I cannot delete it, I cannot force delete it (Shift - DEL) I cannot drag it anywhere.
    However if I exit Outlook and go back in I still cannot delete it but I can move it (to Deleted items) this is before it tries to do a send/receive.
    I have done repair on Office 2003 installation and reinstalled Outlook 2003.
    I have set up a replacement email account and a new account - problem still persists.
    I have gone in as a different user on the machine - problem persists.
    Antivirus detects no problems.

    I am out of ideas - any help / suggestions most welcome.
