Sounds like the email address is being spoofed. Nothing you can do about that it is a flaw of the SMTP protocol in that you can put anything you like in the From: address of an email.

Greetings, BDIEXPERTS !

1. Sounds like an email in stuck in Outlook trying to send.  Look in your Draft or Outbox folders and delete any message.

2. Register an important Outlook file. Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 OLE32.DLL
Do the same for INETCOMM.DLL

3. And addin could be causing the problem. Disable Outlook Addins.  Go to Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager or COMM/Addins and disable the addins.

4. Check if an external program running in the background is interfering with Outlook. Temporarily disable Windows Defender, Symantect antivirus, antispam, ad blocker, popup blocker, and all Norton programs. Disable these programs one at a time.

5. Create a new Outlook profile.

6. Create a new PST file.

Then drag all the emails and contacts addresses to the new PST file.

7. Repair Outlook. With Outlook open, go to Help > Detect and Repair.

8. If no joy, reinstall Outlook.  Go to Add/Remove Programs and highlight Microsoft Office. Click on Install/Uninstall.  A menu will pop allowing you to choose repair or reinstall.
