are you using Hotmail? if so go direct to hotmail and use that.

Could it be your internet connection that's at fault (in other words your connection to your modem, your modem's connection to the phone line, or the phone line itself)?

If you use a browser to do a bit of surfing, do you experience any problems doing that?

Some common antivirus programs can cause ‘stuck mail‘ problems.

This works for the other mail boxes as well as Outbox click here You may still have to delete the stuck message after applying the fix. Remember where the fix is as you are likely to need it again.

The common problem with Vista Windows Mail and stuck emails usually affects the Inbox. With this problem mails cannot be deleted. Downloading SP1 for Vista is known to fix this problem. Try it.

Mails "stuck" in the outbox could be problems with the ISP not allowing mails to be sent.
