    When replying/composing a email I attempt to send and the email is moved to
    the outbox and does not get sent. I have had the program working previously
    but has just now started having these problems. I can receive emails just
    wont allow me to send. Any help is much appreciated

    Hi Adam

    You may have a stuck email in the Outbox folder. Try this to fix th
    stuck undeletable email message problem. It will not hurt anything i
    this is not the problem

    Installing the KB941090 update will just fix the problem for now. Yo
    must stop the cause to prevent it from happening again. Read the sectio
    titled "FIRST" in this tutorial about antivirus and anti-spyware/adwar
    programs to help prevent this from happening again, then install th
    KB941090 Microsoft Update in the section titled "SECOND" to fix and b
    able to delete the stuck message from the problem folder

    Can you either delete the oldest message in the Outbox or move it to the
    Drafts folder, then restart Windows Mail?

    If not, download and install this fix, with Windows Mail not running:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/941090

    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.

    Thank you for your help Robert; however, I have not been able to resolve this
    problem.

    You are right about the last message in my outbox it is displaying an error
    message just as explained in the link you gave me. I am unable to move/delete
    this message. I went ahead and downloaded/installed the plug-in and restarted
    windows mail. But still wouldn't let me delete the message. I then restarted
    my system and still not working..

    Did you try both the 32-bit version of the fix and the 64-bit version? One
    of
    them will just refuse to install, but which one depends on whether you have
    a
    32-bit or a 64-bit version of Windows.

    I initially installed the 32 bit version as you suggessted. It successfully
    installed apparently. When this didnt work I tried installing the 64 bit
    version.. it went through the install before saying "the lastest version of
    the plug-in is already installed"

    Thanks for your help Robert. I found the fix in the link you sent under the
    section further resolutions.. I had to go into the store folder and delete a
    number of files. Then restart the application which automatically retrieves
    the lost inbox msgs and others.
