How do I delete an email from outbox?

  Housten 14:59 20 Jun 2018

Good Afternoon, Gentlemen, Some time ago I started using Windows Live Mail. I have since found out that it is not supported any more! I know that it is not one of the best but I am quite happy to use it. I realise this may upset some people but it works for me so I am happy with it. But I 'sent' an email which has remained in my outbox and I can not delete it! Does anyone know if this can even de done, and if so how to do it?

All replies very gratefully received.

How do I delete an email from outbox?

Occasionally the odd email in WLM refuses to delete but one of these tips should sort it:

  1. Highlight the email then press the big red X (delete) button on the toolbar.
  2. Highlight the email then press the Delete button on your keyboard.
  3. Right-click the email and choose "Delete".
  4. Right click the email, choose "Move to folder" then select "Deleted Items" as the destination.

.....using Windows Live Mail. I have since found out that it is not supported any more!

That's perfectly fine. Email technology hasn't changed, and WLM has enough security features, so there's no need to upgrade to something different if you're happy with what you've got.
