Hi Everyone. I have a bit of a problem with Outlook Express. Early this morning, I was asked to send an email to a certain group. Moments after I clicked the send button I noticed I was sending the email to the wrong group (group consists of about 800+ contacts) so I immediately clicked the stop button. Now I was wondering if anyone was able to receive that email. and that clicking the stop button during the sending phase will totally cancel my email. Or was Outlook able to send the email to members of the group until the time that I clicked the stop button? Information about this would be greatly appreciated.

One factor is your internet connection. If you have broadband - probably some got through.

Anything in your sent box? Definitely got through if you have a copy there.

Probably the best thing to do is turn off your computer in such a case. Yup, it is going to crash but that way you know nothing can be sent from that moment on. Then boot back up and go through the process of a crash.

There is a site for retrieving emails. However, you have to use them before sending - can't retrieve them after the fact.

So it means, Outlook Express sends per email address until it completes the sending task? and that even if you cancel at the middle of the sending process, outlook was already able to send some of the email and only stops t the moment you cancel?

Maybe someone knows the exact sequence down to the second, I don't. I know from experience that clicking stop doesn't mean anything sometimes. Having learned that, I always pull the plug if it is something serious.
