Sounds like your friend is working off-line. Ask her to log on as normal, the email should start sending.

Hi,If its outlook Express?

Damaged Mail Folders
Your mail folders or e-mail messages within the folders may be damaged. There are two ways to troubleshoot this type of problem. The first method is to concentrate only on the Outbox folder. The second method is to create all new folders.

You can create a new Outbox folder using the following steps:
1. Exit Outlook Express.
2. Search your hard drive for Outbox.dbx and delete this file.
3. Restart Outlook Express. A new empty outbox folder is created automatically.

Hope this has helped,
