I have seen this post several times, personally I have never had this problem
with any of my other versions of Outlook. I seem to be struggling with
little things in 2007. Mine is a little bit different than the other posts.
Yes, it gets stuck in the outbox, even if the file is only 2 or 3MB. My real
issue is that is REALLY is sending (over and over and OVER again). Thank
goodness my other half called me and told me to STOP whatever I was doing
because I was clogging up his email at work. I thought it was a fluke (new
PC with Vista and Office '07) but now I think I have a bigger problem because
it happened again. This is not good!!!! How can I stop this from happening.
The only way I could stop it from sending was to delete the PST file.
1. Changing it to working offline and trying to delete the file does not
work.
2. I disabled my send/receive that did not work.
3. Went under Options/Mail Setup and unchecked send immediately when
connected.
4. Under Send/Receive Groups I unchecked most of everything and edited each
account.
3. The only fix was to delete my PST file completely.

Besides being able to delete the file, without deleting the PST file, I
REALLY need to know how to stop if from continually sending the same email
over and over again, and from getting stuck in my outbox in the first place.

Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated!

Bascially I did those things, and more, and none of if worked in 2007. The
only way I could get it to work was to change my Outlook.pst file was to
rename it to OutlookBAD.pst and created a new one. This did not affect any
of my other accounts PST files, so I see no problem. Once I knew Outlook
opened with a new Outlook.pst file I deleted the old one.

Why would I want to disable virus scanning, that makes no sense to me? This
should always be enabled and I have ALWAYS had it enabled in Outlook 2003. I
will certainly try to disable it and check to see if that is the problem, but
I am not comfortable turning it off.

Thank you for your feedback. I will let you know if this was part of the
problem.

At least one of them is GUARANTEED to work, and that is the one that tells
you to create a new PST and set it as your delivery location. A new PST
CAN'T contain anything in the Outbox.
