    When sending an email I get an OE warning (not error).
    The message does get sent however it stays in the outbox.
    As messages get added to the outbox they get re-sent everytime any email is sent.
    The only way around this is to ignore the warning and then delete the sent message from the outbox.
    When I try to send an email I get the following message:
    Some errors occured while processing the requested tasks.
    Please review the list of errors below.

    under the Tasks tab it states : Sending 1 message using pop.xxxx etc.
    under the Error tab there is nothing.

    Thanks to anyone who can help.

    Something to try:

    Start in Safe Mode, run a search on Sent Items.dbx and delete the file. Restart your pc.

    If you are unable to delete the Sent Items file, use Killbox to remove the file.

    Didn't work.
    Will I have to re-install the OS for this problem?

    OE is a part of Internet Explorer. I would try running a repair of IE.

    •From the Start menu, select Run.
    •In the Open field, type sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)
    •Select the OK button.
    •Follow the prompts throughout the System File Checker process.
    •Reboot the computer when System File Checker completes.

    Be sure to visit Windows Update after the repair in order to re-install any critical updates that may have been removed.
