Outlook Express Messages not Leaving Outbox

Hi all,

Client Running OE6 - message sits in outbox until she presses send and receive, at which point it sends the message but it remains in her outbox. When she then presses send and recieve again (after composiing messages) it re-sends the original message still in outbox, and so it goes. It never "clears" the outbox?

Any ideas?
