Can't stop Outlook Express from trying to send bad email addresses

  1. I was trying to send everyone at my work an email using outlook express 6. I typed in one address wrong and so no one is getting their emails.

    That alone is an easy enough thing for me to deal with. I will just resend it.

    HOWEVER, everytime I log on to outlook express or exit the outlook express is says I have unsent messages, do I want to send them. Grr...if I say no, it trys next log in/off. If I say yes, I get an error message saying it is undeliverable.

    How can I stop trying to send that email with a bad recipient address? Thanks for any input. :)

    Go in to the sent items folder, select the message in question and delete it as you would any other email.

    Thank you so much. Ir worked. I adtually had to delete it from the outbox, but it worked~! Thank you so much.

    I was afraid I had to go change a setting or mess with something...err...messy.

    opps meant Outbox actually :)

    I had it happen to me before so I knew exactly how annoying it is.

    Outlook Express sending repeat messages

    I'm having trouble with OE sending messages whenever I'm not even at my computer! It is keeping the message in the Outbox and keeps sending it over and over - more than 100 times to the same email address. Additionally, when I click on SEND/RECEIVE my computer sends the same message again. It won't stop!

    What should I do?
