    Messages stuck in Outbox (outlook 2003)

    Strange...there are many messages that seem to be stuck in the outbox. Outlook says it's sending/receiving, but the same messages are still messages in the out box and don't go out.

    How do we make them go out?

    Thanks.

    Are there any errors? If not, open each one and click Send again.

    Re: Messages stuck in Outbox (outlook 2003)

    I was trying to help over the phone, and later I learned that they used the wrong "send from" address for their in-office ISP. :-(

    However, your reply brings up another problem.

    If a message is in the outbox on their installed copy of outlook 2003, and we open it up and resend, it NEVER goes, even when other messages go out. Have you any thoughts on that? Thus, if we open a msg in the outbox, for instance to check what they said, and then click on send, it goes back into the outbox but is not bolded/italic, and I've learned that if the msg is not bold/italic, it won't go.

    Thanks.

    I think it worked in Outlook 2000-2002, but it's so rare that I really can't remember. I don't have 2003 yet.

    I experience the same "stuck in the outbox" problem sometimes. The only fix I've found is to move the message from the Outbox to Drafts, then "Send" it from drafts. It goes back to the Outbox and gets sent.

    Thanks, Chuck.

    Never thought of that!

    We'll try next time msgs get stuck.
