I faced the same problem. What I did is, open the email which is stuck in the outbox and click on send once again and then do send/receive. The email will then go to sent items. You will have to follow this procedure for each email stuck in the outbox.

Check this knowledge base as it might help you
Also if you want to delete the messages then
Go to Tools, Options and under the General tab uncheck Send and receive messages at startup.
This will cause Outlook Express not to send the problem message and give you the opportunity to delete it.

Microsoft's solution for emails stuck in Outlook Express outbox

by oszkar.horvath In reply to Outlook express Emails st ...

This is the appropriate knowledge base article:

It suggests to delete outbox.dbx (in another source someone also said to delete sent-items.dbx), OR if that doesn't help, create a new Identity and if that works, just import your old messages from the old identity before removing it.
