Emails stuck in outbox and sending in multiples

by on Apr.29, 2009, under FAQ!, How to, Outlook, Windows

I have been sending mail to people and they have been recieving it.
But i get an error when it does the send and recieve but there is no detail in the error.
All my email are in the outbox. Nothing in the sent box. Every time i send an email it resends all the mail that is the outbox from previous messages. I have to manually delete every email that i send from the outbox. So i have no record in the sent box unless i move it to the folder.

Move all items out of the Sent Items folder to a folder of your own creation or delete them if you don’t want them.
Go into the Message Store folder and delete the Sent Items.dbx.
If you haven’t already done it, delete the Outbox.dbx as well.

Open Outlook Express
File > Work Offline
Click on the Local Folders folder
File > Folder > Compact All Folders
Walk away from the computer until the process is complete.
Avoid starting this process if the possibility of a power outage is imminent such as a thunderstorm in progress.

Should the compaction process ever be interrupted, restart it before accessing any folders and allow it to finish.

Start > Search > For Files or Folders > All files and folders,
In the field for: all or part of the file name
Key in:
Below that, click on More advanced options
in the field: Type of File, select (All Files and Folders)
place a checkmark in:
Search system folders
Search hidden files and folders
Search subfolders
click Search
