Outbound Messages Get Stuck In the Outbox

Posted on

Ever tried to send an email and you notice it gets stuck in the outbox in microsoft outlook? When this happens outlook begins sending the message, and fails due to a number of factors, such as large attachment size, spotty internet, or insufficient wireless coverage. Once the message gets stuck, all subsequent outbound emails get stuck and are unable to be sent. The fix for this is quite simple:

  1. Log into Webmail (Click here for instructions on how to access webmail)
  2. Delete the message from your outbox (Click here for instructions on how to delete a message in webmail)
  3. Switch back to outlook, and the remaining messages should begin sending out as usual
