    Help! Outlook has gone berserk! (Outlook 2003/sp1)

    Outlook is turning me into a spammer!

    Whenever I send a file with a big attachment (3MB or more) it gets stuck in my Outbox where it gets sent to the recipient every two minutes (which is what the auto send/receive cycle is set for). Then, when I try to delete it, I get an error message telling me the e-mail can't be opened because it's transmitting. I sent someone an attachment this morning and when I got back to my office, I discovered that they'd had to put me on auto-delete to avoid over-filling their e-mailbox.

    Regular size e-mails (both text and formatted) go in and out without any problems.

    The helpful folks at my DSL's tech support are insisting it's an Outlook issue.

    Can anyone help me figure out what's going on and what to do about it?

    Thank you.

    Is there a time-out setting you can adjust under your account settings? (Since switching to Exchange, I don't have that dialog any more.)

    If I'm reading the correct item, the timeout is set for 1 minute.

    This thread at Experts Exchange - scroll down to see the replies - also points to a timeout problem and suggests it may be an AV issue.
