PROBLEM SENDING EMAIL  ATTACHMENTS

Have a strange problem with Outlook emails. Messages with attachments get stuck in outbox for a period of time. Messages with just text seem to be fine.
You see TRYING TO CONNECT at the bottom of the Outlook Client Software at first when a message with attachment gets stuck.

If you try a manual send/receive you get:-

Task 'Administrator@rototherm.co.uk - Sending' reported error (0x80040115) : 'The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action.'

I've research the above error but have been unable to find a defintative solution.

The core of the work carried out so far trying to resolve this include the following:-
•      Install any Outstanding Important Windows Updates that had not been applied.
•      Install Exchange 2010 SP3 (was on SP1)
•      Install Exchange 2010 SP3 Rollup 4

Any help or suggestions appreciated.

Some troubleshoot to help us out:

What versions of outlook have you tried?
Does it happen in outlook web access?
Are you in cached mode ? if so, does it happen when you turn it off.
Is this outlook client internal or external ?

Lets rule out the client.
Does it happen with multiple users?

I would try re-creating the profile and temporarily testing the same user from another PC.
It could also be network related or just a specific PC problem...

I found this post since you mentioned the MAPI message above. Have a quick look:
