Are you talking about Outlook express ?

Try this.
open OE
go to tools --> options --> maintainence --> store folder and check the path there
close OE
go to that path (it might be hidden so navigate accordingly)
rename outbox.dbx as outbox_old.dbx
now open OE and check if that message stays in outbox..

Glad you got ur issue fixed
