Outlook email OUTBOX jammed!

  Stressed Mum 14:19 02 Sep 2006

Unfortunately an email was sent to my outbox for sending by error! The size of the email is 17MB! Obviously this cannot be sent and now my outbox is jammed up! I cannot delete it, open it, or move it as I am told that the message is already being transmitted. It has been stuck there now for 3 days! Anyone any advice on how to get this out of the outbox in any way? Next time I will move the printer icon away from the email one on the task bar! Many thanks. SM

your ISP's homepage and follow their instructions for deleting a 'stuck' e-mail.

Try this...

Start\search\outlook express...open OE folder ,select outbox,open in notepad or wordpad & highlight contents & delete. I just tried this and it worked for me
