I have two variations of email...one is client based...windows live mail and the other is web based...outlook.com, the replacement name for Hotmail.  Why is there no outbox showing in the web based version of my email?  The reason I ask this question is that whenever a message is not sent in windows live mail the message sits in the outbox and everything else after that will not send out because of the queue.  I then have to delete all of the messages from the outbox before things come back to normal.  Your thoughts would be appreciated on this.  Thanks,
capreol

When you send in Webmail it sends right away (you are connected) so there is no need for an Outbox. In Outlook, you may not be connected, so then you need an Outbox for later sending.
