Message sit in outbox and keep resending


New Email
I am receiving messages fine, but my outgoing messages sit in my outbox and resend every time I hit the send and receive button. Receiving error message box, but no error message. "Tasks" shows sending hotmail message failed, but the message does send (over and over). Help!

Btw, these are small messages and there is not a large message that is unable to send. I've deleted all messages and the problem persists.

There is not one large email "stuck" - I've had that happen before, so that's not the issue.

My virus protection software is up-to-date, so I don't think that's the issue (I have it set to automatically update, but I haven't confirmed that it's the latest version). I'm looking into this now.

Will the stuck "read receipt" be visible in the outbox if there is one stuck there?

I'm not 100% certain but I believe it's possible for them to not actually show up in the outbox but exist and only be viewable with the .exe download linked to in the previous response.

Okay, I'm going to try to make sure everything is updated across the board (outlook/norton/etc) and see if that helps. I went through all of the steps in the "Microsoft Outlook Stuck Outbox" post and nothing helped. Let me try the updates and see if that helps and I'll let you know.
