Remove auto acknowledgement reply email message from Outlook 2003 with no send capability

I have an unresolved problem in setting up my Outlook 2003 account to operate away from home (Cogeco.ca, Kingston, ON).  I have not been able to modify successfully the outgoing.verizon.net setting (password not available).  No advice from my previous post on this matter was successful in resolving the problem.  Since I will return home by the end of March 2011, I can live with the inconvenience of using a work-around via my Hotmail account to send emails.  This works, except when I inadvertently agreed to acknowledge receipt of a given email, as requested by the sender.  I now get the "sending email" window perpetually each time I open MS Outlook 2003.  I cannot locate where this receipt email is stored so as to delete it!  It does not appear in the Send folder.  Please advise me how to eliminate this receipt email, so as to be rid of this annoying window in the Outlook display.  Appreciatively, Bruce

By way of clarification, I am in Florida, renting a unit serviced by Verizon DSL.  The pop-up window is the "Enter network password" request for outgoing.verizon.net, because I have been unable to resolve the username and password from the unit owner.  I simply need to be advised of the location for storage of the "acknowledgement of receipt" email message, since it does not appear in the Send folder in my MS Outlook 2003 program.  Thanks, in advance, Bruce

The alternative is to delete the given email which require you to acknowledge receipt -> Close and restart Outlook 2003.

Hi jackieman: Thanks for your responses.  As for the second one, I have already tried deleting the given email that requested the acknowledgement and re-started Oiutlook 2003 - with no resolution of causing the "enter network pasword" to disappear.  What is the nature of the download which you have suggested?  I prefer to know this before I dowload and execute the program. Appreciatively, Bruce

I have not tried it myself, but the download is from microsoft and should be safe.

The golden rule is to quite Outlook 2003 and make sure that outlook.exe is not in the process list; backup the Outlook.pst file before trying to run MDBVU32.exe afterwards.

After running MDBVU32.exe, open Outlook 2003 again to see whether the problem is gone.

If there is any problem, you can still restore the Outlook.pst file from the backup.

For Windows Vista, the default location of outlook.pst is as follows:-

C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook
