    In OE

    Select View -> Go to Folder -> Local Folders -> Outbox OK

    Remove any unwanted emails, that are trying to be sent!

    Option #2

    Download this small TOOL (this is safe to use)
    Fully close Outlook Express

    Run the newly downloaded "open_oe_store.vbs"
    When the folder opens
    Right click on "Outbox.dbx" and select rename
    Type in OLD.dbx (actually the name doesn't matter)

    Close the folder
    Open Outlook Express

    Is it now OK ?

    1- disconnect from the Internet BEFORE starting OE
    2- start it and delete :)
