Outlook sending multiple messages.

Sometimes Outlook sends multiple copies of the same message to the recipient.  The message has an attachment.  The message stays in my Outbox.

Any Clues,

Thanks in advance.

I found this article which states that the sent box may be full.....you may need to delete some of the sent messages.

Go to

FILE / Info

Account Settings


double click the first email account you are getting duplicate sent emails

Click on the "more settings" button in the bottom right corner of the window

go to the "sent items" tab

click on the circle at the bottom " save sent items in sent folder on this computer"

click "OK"

"next" and outlook should automatically send a test message so you can see if the problem is fixed.
