I have a user that has major hangs when sending email.  Today I found a subfolder under the OUTBOX.  Could a subfolder under the OUTBOX cause a hang when sending email?

What is the OS?  What version of Outlook?  Outlook Express?  Need more information...

Windows XP Pro SP/2.  Office 2003 SP/2.  Microsoft Outlook, not Express.

It's possible, but unlikely.  Try moving the folder to a PST, still hangs?  If so, try a clean restart of Outlook using command line:


Clears and regenerates free/busy information. This switch can only be used when you are able to connect to your Microsoft Exchange server.

Greetings, kessdarln !

Yes, it can interrupt the send.  Outlook is trying to send the folder, and stops sending other emails. Remove the folder.

Best wishes!
