I have these 3 emails in my 'outbox' folder of the default outlook express. Dialup through wanadoo and windows xp. The problem is these emails just sit there - i cant delete them - they dont want to send and then just give me an error with no number (say warning error sending 3 mails bla bla) - although the people received the same mail around 40 times by now, lol

Can anyone help please...

Export your folders with info you want to keep into a PST..

Then delete your profile and recreate it. That should clear it.. there are a few problems in Outlook and OE that require you to delete your profile.. are you fully patched with your version of OE?

I know Lotus Notes requires you to uninstall, reinstall almost everytime a stupid problem with your account pops up.

So you deleted your profile.. then recreated it, imported your PST, and it's still doing it?

Are these messages that you sent to someone?

umm ok. if you have tried all those and your import your pst and still get the same problem, then you prolly need to uninstall and reinstall, and yes it does makes sense...
