How to Unblock Outbox in Microsoft Outlook

  Elkopop 21:14 24 Feb 06

Recently tried to email a photo which keeps trying to send but never makes it through and is blocking other smaller mails from getting out even though I have changed the order in the queue so the big one is last. Cant seem to delete it when highlighted- any help please.

On the File menu click Work Offline. You should then be able to delete it from the Outbox.

Try deleting all the messages in the Outbox first.

If you have to go into the Safe Mode to do it, it will be OK.

Do Not go online before trying to delete them, as once your connection is active Outlook won't let you delete them.

If all else fails, try going to the web site of your e-mail and logging on there and deleting any emails there.

For example: Earthlink has a web site where you can check your e-mail.

You may have to resort to deleting the outbox.dbx thru Windows Explorer.

Outlook will rebuild it when you reopen it, but any messages will be gone, so use that as a last resort.
