    Hi there,

    have you tried to use another mailbox account on your machine?
    If you do not experience this problem with another account, you
    could at least say it's the mailbox. So you'll have at least the possible solution
    to create another mailbox for yourself.

    First try this: Close Outlook, click Start->Run, type Outlook /cleanprofile
    If that doesn't do the trick then recreate the Outlook profile. Profile corruption is the source of many strange behaviours in Outlook.
    You may first want to save away the address cache (the .nk2 file) which contains the addresses the user has prevoiusly sent successfully. You find the .nk2 file here (XP):
    C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
    (Vista: C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook)
    If you do not know how to recreate a profile:
    After recreating the profile you can restore the .nk2 file to the same location assuming you used the same name for the new Outlook profile.
