I had the problem for 4 days and no one could help me. The Knowledge base was
no help either, but one post from this forum gave me an idea. I went off
line, clicked Tools, Mail Box Cleanup, searched for any file over 9999 kb as
my outgoing email was larger. It showed that eamil and some others in
Outlook. I clicked on the hung up email, hit Delete, it asked me if I wanted
to Delete, I clicked Yes, and it disappeared. No redoing files, exporting,
importing, etc.

I cannot tell you if going offline enabled this action or not, but if anyone
else finds out, I would love to know.

But I am not going to load up another mega email to find out!

Hi Joseph (and Bob). I had the same trouble. and did all the things Microsoft
told me to do but to no avail. Then wow, read your email and guess what
worked for me too and I was online. Great work! Thanks Heaps.
