    I have just bought a new laptop with vista.
    When I use windows mail the messages/mail stays in the outbox no matter how
    many times I click on send receive.
    My settings I believe are on the whole correct as on a couple of rare
    occasions my mail has gone and I have received mail??
    I’m with btinternet and through bt yahoo the mail is sent received immediately
    Please can anyone help?
    Thanks Steve

    Click on Tools, then Accounts, then your email account, then Properties.
    If there is no check mark in the box before Include this account when
    receiving mail or synchronizing, click on this box and then Apply.
    Click on OK and then Close.

    Click on Tools, then Options. If there is no check mark in the box
    before Send and receive messages at startup, click on this box and
    then Apply. Click on Send. If there is no check mark in the box
    before Send messages immediately, click on this box and then
    Apply. Click on OK.

    Then close Windows Mail and restart it again. If this is not
    enough, you may have to delete the oldest message in the
    Outbox.

    Try following btinternet's instructions for setting up to use their
    email servers, except under Windows Mail, not Outlook Express:

  3. Microsoft has a fix for that:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/941090
    "Messages may be stuck in the Outbox when you use Windows Mail on a
    computer that is running Windows Vista"

    That page offers two download options. Unless you know for sure
    you have 64-bit Vista, use the 32-bit option.
