How To Set Outlook 2003 Connection Time Out??

I found that sending large attachments (> 2Mb) with an email results in Outlook leaving the message in Outbox while it continues to send multiple copies.  I've seen it send over ten copies to the addressee.  But it never gets cleared and there is not a copy in the Sent folder.  Reported to my ISP, who instructs me to "increase connection time in Outlook", but does not tell me how.

Agree that this is the problem?  If so, I cannot find the right spot on the menu of O 2003 to set this.

tools > email accounts > veiw or change>  select account and click change> click more settings and on the tab that says advanced you will see a slider for time outs. Im not sure this will solve the prob but if thats what your ISP said to try, its probably best to rule it out first. If the prob is not fixed by this com back and let us know and we can try something else
