Frozen outbox

My father has just rung me with a problem with Windows Mail. Basically he has a message "stuck" in his outbox. He has tried everything to delete it without success.It is stopping him from sending any more emails. Any thoughts anybody

Try logging on to his isp homepage and access the email account from there,then if a copy is left on the maybe able to delete it.

Not sure if this works with Windows Mail but for Outlook if you choose file then select work off line. The email should then delete from the out box. Select work on line after that.

This usually happens if the outgoing email has a large attachment.
