Continually sending a message in Outlook and failing

I have Outlook 2003. A few days ago I was looking through my emails and I must have clicked on my mouse too much. I was in the Inbox of Outlook and I think I may have right clicked on a message a couple of times that wasn't open but was in my preview pane. :) Since then Outlook is continually sending a message that I cannot find in my Outbox at all. I cannot send any other message and this message (whatever it is) is constantly sending and failing. When it is in the task area it says: "Home Sending Sending Messages". Here is what I get in the details once it has failed: "! Task 'Home - Sending' reported error (0x8004210B): 'The operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending (SMTP) server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet Service Provider (ISP).' I am able to receive messages from this acct. and also receive from another acct. I have. I know it was an error I made but can't figure out to rectify it. I looked all through the Outlook settings, but am not sure what will correct my blunder. I also looked at the Microsoft website and help logs to see if I could find anything similar to my problem to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
