    Most likely you have been screwed by lousy antivirus software
    like Norton or McAfee which acts like a sleeper or mole* in that
    it suddenly waked up to undermine your system after a period
    of apparently benign residency.

    Uninstall the traitor entirely and install a volunteer (free) patriot
    such as AVG or Avast

    note. You should omit the email scanning component

    Then you can tackle the email stuck in the outbox with this
    counter terrorist device
    providing you follow the instructions, particularly those highlit by
    the red army... Oops... I mean box!

    Try this free utility to clear your Outbox:

    NOTE: Read and follow the instruction, especially the ones in the RED box.

    Dr. Steve Cochran wrote Wmutil and his site should be bookmarked
    by all Outlook Express and Windows Mail users...

    Providing you don't use Norton of McAfee anti virus suites
    and do configure email clients in accordance with your ISP's
    instructions it's unlikely you'll have any problems with email
    inherent to Windows XP or Vista.

    Anyone who says different is a liar, moron,. or both.

    I've been experiencing this problem for a few weeks with my relatively new HP
    w/Windows Vista Home Premium, but have yet to find a fix. However, the
    problem may have led to a more serious problem, according to Geek @ AT&T.
    Suddenly, I'm unable to send mail, and have discovered nearly 20 messages
    stuck in my out box. Of greatest concern, help seems very evasive! Good luck,

    Download and install this fix, with Windows Mail not running:

    Although it's labelled as for mail stuck in the Outbox, it also works
    in other folders. If you don't know whether to use the 32-bit version
    or the 64-bit version, try the 32-bit version first. Certain common
    antivirus programs, such as most of those from Norton or McAfee,
    or a recent one from Trend, tend to cause such problems, although
    seldom immediately, so if you have such a program, remember
    where to find the fix - you are likely to need it again.

    You may need to delete the oldest message in the Outbox after
    applying the fix, if it still won't send.
