    Deleting unsent message (6)

    I tried to send a large file with Outlook
    Express. It appeared from blue line creeping across that it was almost sent when an error message appeared saying it hadn't been sent because it was too large. Problem is, this message is still being retained in memory of Outlook Express, so that every time I try to send anothe message it also wants to send this one. How can I cancel the sending of the large file? I just installed IE6, so have the newest version of OE, but was wondering the same thing when I had 5.5. There have been times when I got an error message sending something by OE, so sent it a different way. But next time I sent messages using OE the message I no longer wanted to send went anyway.

    Happened to me once. I believe you can go into a "Sent" folder in OE and just delete it...it should still be listed there, since it really hasn't been sent at all.
    Perhaps someone else has different solution, but that is the only way I remember how I got rid of a too large msg.
    Good luck. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    It should be listed in the "OUT" folder until it is sent, then it will get moved to the "Sent" folder. If it is in the "Out" folder just delete it from there. Close Outlook and restart. This SHOULD solve the problem.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Thanks, Dave and Ilona for responding. The messages are gone. I found them in Outbox just as Dave said I would. What a relief. I had visions of never again being able to use OE to send messages.

    Regards to you both, Ken
