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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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