Outlook has been freezing. It has been suggested that an email might be causing the problem.

I have run multiple virus scans, nothing.

Is there a way to delete email outside of outlook?

depends on your ISP. check with your ISP if they have web based email for their service

Also try these

a)You may want to open outlook in safe mode (start --> run --> outlook.exe /safe)

b)Open outlook .Go to help menu and click "Detect and repair"

c)you may also want to delete the email account and recreate it going to accounts

d) Repair PST : http://www.slipstick.com/problems/scanpst.htm

e)Also take a backup of all emails and go to control panel ---> mail --> delete the profile and recreate one again

f)Check for spywares and virus

g)If nothing works out repair or reinstall office
go to control panel --> add/remove programs --> scroll down to office
click on "change" and repair or reinstall

dpctechhelp,
>  It has been suggested that an email might be causing the problem.

but if you had already downloaded the mail , it may not be possible to remove it from outlook if you are not using IMAP account.

Are you  using IMAP or POP3 ?
If pop3 , then checkthe suggestions , I had given

If IMAP , contact your ISP.

Do post back if you donot get it solved

The main purpose entering outlook using safe mode is to disable any add-ins or macros that you have installed .
