Outlook: anyway to get this huge e-mail in my Outbox deleted? Can't open or delete it

Somehow my wife sent a 44MB file in Outlook. We have a very high DSL connection. For some reason, it has not been sent and we've had it on for 3+ hours.

So I want to delete it, stop sending it, etc. Only problem is I can't. Can't delete it, move it, open it, or anything.

Any way to stop it??

Call your service provider of your email.Ask them to help you delete it.I had the same problem with it once.You need to access your mail server and delete.Otherwise it will be doing the same thing.Usually your Mail server has a tech guy to help you with it

Actually, I figured it out.

Turning off the PC wouldn't change anything on the mail server or Outlook 2003.

All I had to do was turn off my Anti-Virus software, which then enabled me to delete the outgoing message.

Thanks!
