Running Outlook 2000 on Windows XP, I have 1 message that is stuck in the outgoing mail box. I cannot delete it or move it (It says it cannot delete a message that had been starting to send, but it never send it.

If I put in another message it will go, but it takes abit longer beacuse it hangs on the first message that will not go,,, any ideas ?

Connected to POP3 for incoming and SMTP for outgoiing, local PST file in use

I believe either would have work, but I did #1 as it already had 2 profiles..

Root cause is the message was huge (58Mb)
