    Outbox emails for Outlook just sit & don't send.

    Whenever I have had that problem in the past - I just moved Outbox emails to Draft folder .Then I would try to resend later.

    But now I have 2 emails sitting in Outbox & when I try to move them to Drafts - I get this message :"Can't open this item. Outlook has already begun transmitting this message. "
    HELP!

    Unplug the LAN cable from the back of the computer, open Outlook, and then try moving those emails. It should work.
