Outlook stuck with false outgoing mail

  fruityfj 13:53 09 Jan 06

My Outlook 2003 SP1 is stuck on some non-existent outgoing mail messages. The Outbox is empty but the Send/Receive Status keeps showing 'Sending message 1 of 3'

I've tried running Detect & Repair. I'm reluctant to have to reinstall it unless I have to - anybody any ideas of anything else I can try

Try detect and repair in safe mode (Tap F 8 on boot)I think that way it can't try to connect.

Thanks Rawprawn. I tried that but Windows Installer Service won't run in Safe Mode

Try File|Work Offline, then a repair.
