Outlook 2010 Email Stuck in Outbox; Corrupt Outlook Profile

Q: Outlook 2010 Email Stuck in Outbox; Corrupt Outlook Profile

We are running Exchange 2003 SP2 and our clients have Office 2010. Our Outlook profiles are created automatically by using Group Policy to set a registry key which points to a PRF file with all the Outlook settings. Lately, many of our users are reporting that their emails are getting stuck in the Outbox. If you look at their Outlook profile, they have two Exchange accounts listed. You cannot delete either of them; it gives a message that this is the default email account.
 
The immediate solution is to recreate the user's Outlook profile. This allows the stuck email to send. The real issue is that this keeps occurring. Recreating the Outlook profile sometimes fixes the problem for a long time, months maybe. But other times the problem occurs the next day. This is happening with users who have established Outlook profiles as well as new users logging into their PCs for the first time. I've attached the code from our PRF. Any help is appreciated, as we have around 400 active users and we're constantly chasing after this issue.

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2010 Email Stuck in Outbox; Corrupt Outlook Profile

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

A: Outlook 2010 Email Stuck in Outbox; Corrupt Outlook Profile

Couple steps you may apply...
 
1. Repair the offline file with a Microsoft utility called SCANOST.exe. I’ve seen this file reside in a number of different locations, mainly within Program Files. It might be best to search for it with Windows or Google Desktop. SCANPST.exe will also work, though you’ll have to go digging for your outlook.ost, which should be near c:\Documents and Settings\ %profile%\ Local Settings\ Application Data\ Microsoft\ Outlook\ outlook.ost. If your file is significant in size, you’ll save a lot of time with the repair operation by not creating a backup. Because if the repair finishes successfully and Outlook still bombs, you’ll need to.
2. Shutdown Outlook completely, including any runaway outlook.exe processes in the task manager. Open Mail in the Control Panel and before you delete your profile completely, write down the server settings! There’s no need to worry about backing up your mail as it’s stored on the Exchange server. (Essentially, you’re deleting that outlook.ost when you drop your mail profile.) Now, start Outlook and it will create a new profile, where you’ll configure the server with the information you wrote down previously.

Hi Guys,

I'm running Exchange on W2K3 with 5 Clients all using Outlook 2003. One of the clients is steadfastly refusing to send email from the desktop in the office - it gets stuck in the outbox (it shows up marked in italics).

The user of the machine is able to access the Exchange Server remotely on his desktop and can send and receive email fine - with the exception that it's not synchronizing with the email stuck in the outbox on the client in the office.

Any suggestions?

Hi everyone,

I'm writting on behalf of my mom. She tried sending an important file to someone but it was too heavy. It got stuck in the Outbox and now nothing is working anymore. She tried deleting the email in the Outbox. doesn't work, dragging it into the recycle bin, doesn't work. It's like if everything froze because of the email that was to heavy?!

I then told to to save her contacts and email she didn't want to loose by doing Export to a file in a folder and the uninstall MS Office completely and reinstall it.

After uninstalling it, rebooting, she starts MS Office Outlook 2007 and everything is back the same like before uninstalling it?!

Why is that?

Hope someone can help.

Thanks,

I don't know how these things work in Outlookk, but if the file is too big it could also be that her provider doesn't accept her sending such large Emails.
Uninstalling and Installing does not delete the pst file so what is in it is still there.

Hi. I am having a problem with my MS Outlook 2007 email. Anything I send to myself or copy to myself stays stuck in the "outbox". Occasionally one will actually go through, but it still appears to have not been sent as it remains in the "outbox". I have sent the same email multiple times because it didn't appear to have been sent until someone asked me why I had. The copy to myself seems to be what is hanging them up in the outbox now. I was having other issues including the size of the attachment, but I was able to resolve them with other user's question/answers. Thanks! This is still causing me a problem however. Please help! I'm frustrated!

The message size may still be too large as most email providers impose limits on the size of message they will allow through their servers.

To delete any which are stuck in the Outbox, switch Outlook to "Offline" mode, they should then be deletable.
Open Outlook, click File >> Work Offline
Delete message, then click File >> Work Offline again to put it back online.

Hi All,
I have spent many hours looking for a fix myself and reading the messages in this forum and after finding a solution, thought I would do the right thing and help you fix your problem.

The probelm is the Server Time setting which is set to a maximum of 1 minute by default.

This is not enough time to send the large email and thus starts to send again even though it has actually sent.

To fix this problem by increasing the Server Time Setting, please go to this very good web site for the method.

if the item is stuck in your outbox, you may not be able to delete it until you set Outlook to work Offline (Send / Receive then Work Offline from the Ribbon). Note: This may not be instantaneous - you may need to let it sit in Offline for a while before you can go to your Outbox and delete the stuck mail.

I followed your instructions I found on the forum to do a search for - .dbx - found the Outbox and deleted it. The new outbox restored itself in my Outlook. Thanks so much to the poster for saving me!!

NOW: If I work 'offline' could I restore that outbox which is now in the recycle bin and retrieve that original huge message so that I can retrieve at least the body of the email and do away with the photos??

Hi,

We have Outlook installed on a hosted server (CPAASP), using a gmail account as the default email. We have a program that generates monthly statements and emails them to our customers automatically through Outlook/gmail. Last month we had 109 statements to send. The first 100 went, then the last 9 were left sitting in the outbox. There is no automatic Send/Receive set up for this Outlook. Waited a few minutes, manually clicked Send/Receive, and the last 9 were sent.

Any idea why those last 9 weren't sent? I would think if it was because we bumped up against Gmail's 100 email limit, those last 9 wouldn't have been sent. And any suggestions as to how we can prevent this from happening in the future?

Thanks!

Hi Guys,

We have a single user here that has problems with stuck outbox messages in outlook. Off of only one of his email accounts in his profile. Off of only his computer. There are definitely some patterns of characteristics from the emails though, which I would imagine have something to do with the problem. They are: They almost always include attachments, they've always got multiple recipients and CC's, and they're almost always replies in threads of emails being sent back and forth.

Clearing out and recreating his profile doesn't help, doing the standard "take off some of the 'RE:'s in the subject line", throw it in drafts and then re-send it, copy-and-paste it into a new message altogether... some of these randomly help solve problems at total random, but 99% of the time they don't work.

My only workaround that works completely is using a virtual box (or logging in through another PC), setting up his profile and forwarding the stuck message from the outbox on the alternate computer.

Now obviously that means it's not our email host, and it's not some strange format or character that's universally just not able to send... what happens with these messages is that they aren't even looked at, they don't even begin to send (sometimes attachments would explain a delay as it would take time to send out a big file), they're just ignored permanently on his computer.

I obviously see a solution would be to switch out his desktop, but that's kind of like saying "... Read more

A:Outlook stuck outbox- Not conventional 'stuck' either

Greetings!

I have a bit of experience with Outlook and Exchange, so I have a few questions for you--
Are you running in a Microsoft Exchange environment, and if so, which version?
What antivirus are you running on the affected PC?
Do you have any special spam filtering or virus scanning on the mail server that is specifically for email?

I've seen where certain antivirus products can cause these "stuck" outbox issues. I assume you've tried the basic F9 (send/receive) to try and force the message through as well?

We're running MS Windows XP on a network and are having a problem with MS Outlook. E-mail is getting 'stuck' in the Outbox and doesn't appear to be going out. However, the mail is being received (sometimes 8 - 10 times) by the recipient. There doesn't appear to be a way to remove the e-mails from the Outbox. They will not delete and do not show up as "Sent." So... every time you start up Outlook, the same e-mail sends again. Curiously, it's only happening with two of the six computers we have on the network even though all are running the same software and operating system.

For the last three weeks, some messages get stuck in my Outlook Express outbox. I then logon through the internet and send the stuck messages from there (it's a pain, but that proves the problems are not caused by the messages I'm sending).

RELEVANCY SCORE 89.6

Hi,

I'm using outlook 2003 directly with a pop3/smtp account from my internet provider. My provider has limited the size of outgoing mailmessages to 5 MB.

Sometimes, I accidently send a larger mail (eg 10MB). The mail then gets stuck in my outbox. It can't be sent using my account, so it just stays in the outbox. I can't delete it directly, as Outlook says that it already started sending the message.

I have found a workaround to delete the message: Set Outlook to "Work Offline", exit the program, restart Outlook and I can delete the offending 10MB message.

My question is: isn't there a way to prevent Outlook from putting this mail in the outbox to begin with? I would like some some sort of parameter "max attach size" that warns me before attempting to send a huge message. I would like to avoid having to use the workaround I described above.
 

A:Outlook, huge attachment stuck in outbox

I am not aware of any setting in OL2003.
I use Eudora and it does indeed do just that, which is useful.

As email adds about 25% to the size of an attachment after encoding, the warning can be very useful. Eudora gives the encoded size, and it is user customisable.

My problem started when I was still running Win XP Prof w/ SP1.

One day my emails would get stuck in the outbox of outlook express, being shown as unsent, although it was actually sending it over and over everytime Outlook express would send/receive. Many people stopped asking me to write them so many times.

Our office tech guy suggested getting windows defender and running that.
Also to upgrade to Norton Internet Security 2006. He also suggested that I move to MS Outlook. He also had me remove adaware.

Before I could get windows defender i had to d/l and install SP2 which i did, and then WDefender. Neither WinDef nor Norton came up with anything, and now I can't open MS Outlook without it crashing.

Comp tech guy has no other suggestions and now would like to wipe and reload my hard drive. *freaking out!*

Are you positive that your imap or pop3 settings are correct. If you can receive emails, your incoming server is obviously correct... but if it's not sending, there may be an issue with the "outgoing" server details.

If you wouldn't mind, could you post your outgoing server address?

When sending a large e-mail file in Win 7 Outlook, typically a large mp3 file, Outlook will sometimes get hung up and the e-mail will not leave the outbox. It stays stuck there trying to send repeatedly but never successfully, messing up everything else in Outlook. I have done lots of on-line homework and there are many more suggested simple solutions, but this is the only one that seems to get the job done: Delete a Message Stuck in the Outbox
It's a real pain! It took me about four hours to find the solution that works and then at least 30 minutes every time I have to research the article and then hack Outlook to free up the stuck email in the outbox. The MS corporate on-line forum teckies insist that it is a e-mail client server problem, which is absolutely false as many others also agree. I don't care if the e-mail does not get through as much as I just want to be able to delete it from the outbox when it gets hung up in a never ending loop of trying to send perpetually, eating up processing power, and it will never leave and it can't ever be DELETED without some serious hacks to the Outlook program. That's not a client/server issue.

Anyone else have the same problem or find a simple solution?

I'm sorry to contradict, but I think this is a server problem. If you send an attachment that is larger than the server-set limit, you'll run into problems. A common limit is 5Mb - are the troub... Read more

Hello everyone,
Want to first start off by thanking you for taking the time to look at my problem with Outlook.

First the background:
I work as IT for our company but I myself am having an issue with a new change in the company that happened last weekend. We moved to an outsourced Exchange server for our emails. Now previously you either setup the email push on a timer or manually did it for sending and receiving. With Exchange, it should be automatic and sync it all between your devices connected to that account on the server.

If I create and send an email on either the Webmail (browser email platform) or my phone, it works like it is supposed to.

The Issue:
When I create an email with my laptop, running Win 7 pro 64 and Office 10, using Outlook, it never gets sent unless I manually push it. It fails to automatically sync and send the email. It also refuses to go out if I set a timer or Rule to push it out.

I have check various areas where it could be but still could use the help. I'm thinking my next try might be to reinstall Office.

A:Win 7, office 2010, Outlook is not pushing outbox with Exchange.

Okay so I Have a Sync log that has failed. Removed any information not necessary and replaced with "----"

Hi everyone;

My first post!

Problem: I have an outbox message stuck - I can not open it, delete it or anything else - I have other emails stuck behind it.

Help: I need to take this message out of the queue. What do I do?

Background: I've been using Outlook 2003 for over a year now, connected to Yahoo. Yesterday, I found a message from a colleague that was filtered into JunkBox folder. I replied to this email prior to moving it to Inbox. The message is now stuck in Outbox. When I try to open it or delete it, I get a message: “Can’t open this item. Outlook has already begun transmitting this message”.

My actions so far: I disabled Send/Receive within outlook as well as wireless connection.

Thanks in advance
SV

Hi there,

I tried to send an email that was far too big, and now it is stuck in my Outlook outbox. I've searched similar problems and have found many suggestions to clear it, but my problem is that the very second I open Outlook it crashes and I can do nothing with it but ctrl-alt-del & kill it!

So I can't access any menus to clear it, or put it offline - HELP!

I downloaded MDBVU32.EXE from a Microsoft site but it looks too scary for me to attempt to use that - I don't really know what I'm doing there and I don't want to wreck it completely.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I have Outlook 2013 on Windows 7.

I currently cannot send email from my POP/SMTP Sbcglobal.net account; they just get stuck in my outbox. The size of the emails are very small (i.e. 5 kb) since I am just testing to see if I can send. I used to be able to manually go in and send each email individually from the outbox, even though they would not auto-send, but since yesterday have been unable to do even that.

I checked and double checked my settings to ensure that they are correct, which they are as far as I can tell. Attached are .jpg of my settings in outlook. I can receive emails in this account just fine. I have disabled the scanning of outbound email on my AV software. I have deleted the account and have made a new one, but the problem is still present. At this point I have searched and searched the internet for a solution but could not find one.

It seems that for some reason Outlook is not properly connecting with my outbound smtp server and I cannot figure out why.

Any help troubleshooting this matter would be great.
Thanks in advance.

There are a dozen emails in the outbox and they are stuck there. Outlook 2007 i understand, is supposed to be kept open while the emails get to be sent. In this case that didn`t happen and a large email, with pictures, was added to be sent now there all stuck. It did say that messages 1 & 2 were being sent but that was yesterday and nothing has arrived at the recipients end this morning. Can you help please?
 

A:Solved: Emails stuck in outbox Outlook 2007

Hi terrace

Can you move the e-mails out of the Outbox and then add yourself to the BCC: line then click Send on each of the e-mails, again?

That way, you'll know they have been sent when you receive a copy.

Did you try deleting the messages from the Outbox?

Ok gang, I have one that really is throwing me for a loop. One computer in my company is having difficulties in sending e-mails through Outlook 2007 running POP3. The part that has me scratching my head is that everything works fine while the computer is connected here in our office, but whenever she leaves, she has intermittent sending issues... it just hangs in the ourbox. It works for the first few minutes then stops sending them out. I have searched all through the Microsoft site and couldn't find anything that related.

Any ideas on what to look for?

A:Outlook 2007 - e-mail stuck in outbox (depends on ISP)...

I had a similar issue, though it may not be the same.

Some ISP's (like AT&T, who I hate and despise and upon whom I heap curses and incantations of evil) won't let you use any SMTP server other than theirs to send mail, even if the e-mail account isn't with them. You have to go through a whole rigamaroll to set it up.

But like I said, your issue may be (and probably is) something different. Are there any error messages?

I am having a similar problem to BillyJilly, except that I am running Outlook 2003 and he is running Outlook Express. Some emails get stuck in my Outbox and don't go to the Sent Items folder. However my recipient does receive the mail over and over until I physically delete it from the Outbox after the first "send". It is normally only mails with large attachments, 750Kb or larger. Sometimes I get an error message after it has tried to send and sometimes not. I am running Windows XP Professional 2002 (SP2). I connect to our office server to send and receive mail. Part of the problem is that although I know that the mail was sent (because I receive irate emails telling me to stop re-sending the mail), it doesn't go into the Sent Items folder so I can't search for it later. I have set Outlook to Send/Receive automatically. It also happens if I send mails to my colleagues in the office via the server i.e. not using my ISP. Any help will be appreciated as Microsoft can't solve the problem.

I'm posting here for a my next door neighbor. He is having a difficult time sending emails larger than 3MB. They seem to get stuck in the Outbox. He has been through multiple conversations with his ISP (Verizon FIOS) and with Microsoft. No one, so far, has given any definitive help. Sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn't. I've spent a few hours now trying to figure out the problem but no success. I actually gave him this computer about a month ago and I never had this problem with it.

Any of you Guru's help would be greatly appreciated.

He's running Windows XP PRo SP2 3.2 GHz w/ 1 GB memory. The email client is Outlook 2003 SP1.

Thanks,

I have Outlook 2003 and there is a large hotmail email (5MB file attached) in my outbox that I am
trying to delete, but it refuses to budge, indeed it appears to keep sending
an email to the recipient every few minutes according to the sent box.

The responses I've seen to clear this seem to lead in the right direction but the precise steps are not clear. Can someone break it down more clearly for me. I've tried deleting / going offline etc but that hasn't worked.

Yes, I just recently installed Microsoft Office 2010 Pro onto my computer. I have run into a bit of a problem. I wanna make Microsoft Outlook 2010 the default email client for my user side and I wanna leave Outlook Express as default for another user on my computer. I cannot seem to figure out how to do this because once you pick a default email program on one user desktop it also makes it the default for other users on the computer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
