    Hi

    what happens when you try to send them, your post is lacking a little in information.

    can't send messages in Outlook 2007 from outbox

    nothing happens, the email messages just sit there in outbox, and don't get sent, even though i open them and press send, over and over

    Did Outlook 2007 ever work on that computer?
    You need an Outlook 2007 trouble shooter to carefully go through your setup. You are likely just missing something. The Outlook guide will be the easiest way to figger out what it is... Otherwise the guesswork on this forum will wear you down.

    um, let me look into my crystal ball..... since you failed to post pertinent information....

    I'll assume you failed to configure your servers in your email client.

    lol at tedster,

    I use 2007 and its fine,

    On the top row click Tools and then Account settings, assuming there is anything in the box then double click it and the advanced settings box will come up, you need to check you have things in there such as SMTP and POP information.

    Without these Outlook wont know how to send or recieve your mail.

    For information on what the settings should be contact your service provider.

    problem solved

    Thanks for all the advice. Outlook was set up incorrectly with inappropriate SMTP server. Problem is solved!
