I have an old message in my outbox that Outlook will not send. It advises
that it is in the process and then half way through it says there was an
error and can't complete the send. Meanwhile, it won't let me delete the old
message or any other messages I have tried to send. Is there anything I can
do?
Thank you.

Start Outlook in Offline mode, delete the message, close Outlook, and
restart it in Online mode.

I'm having the same problem but your suggestion did not work.

It's been sending the same five messages all day to the point my sent folder
is overflowing; which I can delete.

Any other suggestion?
