I have an email in my Outlook 2007 "outbox" that never got sent and I cannot delete it. It has a large attachment. Now whenever I try to mail out an email it stays in my 'outbox' quite a long time before going out; but the original email with the large attachment remains in the outbox.
How do I delete this item...all the different "deletes" I have tried so far have no effect.

Thanks,
Tim

Open the email as though you are going to read or edit it.
Remove the attachment.
Click it's 'Send' button.

Whenever I try to open it, it says " Cannot open this item. Outlook has already begun transmitting this message". However, it NEVER gets sent.

this may be because your attachment is too large for your email server to handle. what error message you are getting? Is it MAPI spooler message? If yes then try to open Outlook in Offline Mode and then delete the message. If you are unable to go to offline mode then you please go thru the following article:

Thanks
