Hi fellow geeks!
really bizarre problem here. Earlier today I attached a 4MB mp3 file to an email to send to a friend. The Outlook (2002 SP3)send/receive progress box eventually timed out, saying the file could not be sent.

I retried 2 more times and then attempted to delete the message from my outbox; it wouldn't let me (an unknown error has occurred). Ultimately I deleted the attachment and sent the blank email anyway which got it out of my outbox.

Now, when i try to send/receive, it shows there are messages to be received and appears as though it is downloading them but then reports "unknown error (0x8004060C)".

Not only can i no longer receive emails but my friend is being bombed with the 4mb file once a minute. She has received over 200 copies of my email with the file and it keeps coming.

yikes!
please help!
thx
Mike

my friend reports that the mail bombings have stopped at her end. however, i still cannot send nor receive any emails via Outlook...it attempts and then returns the same "unknown error".

do i need to reinstall Outlook? gasp. how strange that my sending a large attachment would have corrupted the entire application, huh?

i am running Winding XP home ed. Ver 2002, SP3. Dell 4550 desktop with Pentium 4 2.53GHz, 1GB RAM
