Outlook express stuck in sending mode

By cstaunton ·
I sent a foward of an email I received, with an attachment. Systems crashed while sending. Now OE 5 is stuck in sending mode. I can not get new email because of this. I uninstalled and reinstalled but it just reloads the same thing. And I am still stuck in sending mode. Any ideas?

Go to your Outbox and delete anything you find. It may still be trying to send this file.

You can see if deleteing the Outbox would help (it will recreate itself when you open the app again)

The Outbox.dbx is located in (Win98):

C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
