I can't send anything.....Everything I try to send goes to the 'outbox'.
I think that is the 'outhouse'....nothing sends, they just pile up there.
I wish a solution would appear how to make Outlook work like it should!
For me, I think I have a setting wrong...maybe just maybe you do also?

If the message does not empty form the outbox, due to a crash or disconnect, it will send again...that's all that comes directly to mind.
Create a second identity and see if it duplicates from that?
Janie, did you respond to my other questions in your thread?

Yes, I replied to you, Gerry, in my thread about Not being able to delete History, is that the thread you meant or the one about Outlook?
However, I am too 'unintelligent when it comes to computers' to know how to do your suggestions.....I couldn't even get into safe mode! waaaaaaaa

My Outlook has worked perfect for years also.
It just started acting up since I downloaded Firefox and also since getting a new
'Popeye' suggested we should have IE as our default browser for Outlook
to work right. Do you?
He also sent me this site that has lots and lots of Outlook Express problems and solutions.
Maybe your answer will be there.

I have horsed around, trying to get my Outlook Express to SEND like it did
before I changed Internet Servers and have spent far too many hours trying to fix it, asking here for help, searching the Internet, changing settings etc.
I finally got smart, well my 13 year old niece is the smart one, and DUMPED OUTLOOK EXPRESS.
We don't need it...there is an alternative and I have been using it today and it is working great...You might give it a try...and can always go back to Outlook.
Here is the thread:
How to change from Outlook Express to Hotmail
Let us know if you give it a try.

Janie, can I try to help you with your OE ??????
Posted 08 August 2005 - 10:02 PM
You WILL have another email address (Hotmail) but you won't need to use it very often.
You can keep your ISP email address; you wouldn't want to have to tell everyone
you are changing email addresses, that would be a nuisance for sure...
Your messages will NOT come through Outlook Express any longer but through Hotmail.
That is how it is working for me today....I don't know if you ever noticed but in the top browser row is a picture of an envelope with a tiny arrow beside it.
If you click on it, it will open your Outlook Express...now when I click on it, it opens into Hotmail....
You may NOT have this 'little envelope' but it is in the browser row of my Yahoo home page.....If you DON'T have this envelope and little tiny arrow, ry clicking on this and see if you get the envelope I am talking about! Yahoo Home Page
DON'T GIVE UP rbobbyd....

Well, if it were one day earlier, I would sure have you help me and I would go and check if I had the same thing checked on my Outlook Express but I don't have it anymore and I really don't care since Hotmail does the same thing...sends emails from my computer.
We always have to have either Outlook or Hotmail to be able to send pages and pictures etc...there is probably others, maybe AOL..not sure.
I never noticed that box about breaking up msgs bigger than 60KB.
I bet I have been to Outlook properties and mail options a hundred times trying
to figure out the problem.
I can't call my Internet Provider because at 1.95 per minute, I would be broke!
So anyhow...CONGRATULATIONS on getting the solution to your problem and thanks for sharing it here.
Sincerely, Janie flowergirl

Thanks for the kind words. My OE is back to working great now. What ISP do you use and do they really charge for trouble calls ??????
Posted 09 August 2005 - 08:58 PM
I use PeoplePc....it cost 14.95 per month with accelation and 10.95 without it.
Unlimited minutes...I go the 14.95 route as it seems a little faster.
The first month was free if I switched...
My previous Provider was called KCONLINE and it cost 21.95 and DID HAVE
limited minutes of 240 per month. But Outlook Express worked just fine.
Kconline had free calls for help. (800 number) ...peoplepc does charge the 1.95 per minute. EEK...I won't call them, that is toooooo expensive as it usually takes quite
awhile to solve a problem.
They have free online help so I have written them quite a bit trying to get my
Outlook Express to work.
But so far, so good, with Hotmail to replace Outlook.
I'm sure glad you have yours working again.
