    Synchronizing Folders? (OL 2003)

    Lately, sending messages, especially with an attachment, seems to hang up in my Outbox. Sometimes the mail sits there for 12-24 hours.

    I've noticed that the Outlook icon in the toolbar has little envelopes on top. When I put the cursor on it I get a message about how Outlook is sychronixing folders.

    Can anyone tell me what's going on and how I solve it?

    Thanks.

    Is Norton Anti-Virus set to check your outgoing mail?

    Are you using a stand-alone version of Outlook or are you connected to Exchange Server or Small Business Server?

    I don't have Norton. I'm using PC-cillin. But your point is well-taken.

    It's the stand-alone version of Outlook.

    For what it's worth, I've begun to suspect that there is some sort of limit on attachment file sizes. Because the Outbox doesn't bottleneck regular e-messages until after there's one with an attachment.

    Thank you.

    Attachment size is usually an ISP issue, and - unless you have a very low bandwidth limit - is unlikely to be an issue. Even then, you'd probably be having to send Mb at a time for it to matter.
