How do I delete a file in my outbox that has been trying to send for over 2
months? I've tried moving it to my inbox to delete and also tried to delete
in my outbox. HOW CAN I GET RID OF THIS? PLEASE HELP.

Try these, one of them should work:

Open the message from the Outbox and close it again. Now select the message
and press DELETE
or
Put Outlook in offline mode. To do this go to File-> Work Offline. Now
restart Outlook and see if you can delete it (you can try this in combination
with method 1). Don't forget to put Outlook back On-line again.
or
Create a new pst-file; File-> New-> Outlook Data File...
Set this pst-file as your default delivery location in your Account
settings; Tools-> E-mail Accounts-> button Next
When you now restart Outlook your original pst-file will show up as the
secondary set of folders where should easily be able to remove the file from
or even the complete Outbox folder
Set the original pst-file as the default delivery location again and restart
Outlook; the Outbox folder will be recreated and will be empty.
