Sending Large Files in Outlook

When I send large file attachments from Outlook (running Win XP) the file stays in my outbox and continues sending to the receiver continually, until I delete the email from my outbox. Today it was received by one person 49 times, until they rung me and I deleted it. It never appears in my sent items. Would appreciate any pointers from anyone - thank you

I avoid such problems by running my own mail server, this also has the effect of speeding up the delivery times by bypassing the ISP's mail servers. I use the PostCast free edition server, but there are several others around.
