Outlook 2007 - Cannot send emails from Outbox

Context: Outlook 2007 working on Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1

When trying to send an email, the MS Outllok software goes into a continuous
loop. The best way for me to explain it is when I Click on the Send/Receive
function, a dialogue box opens up titled "Outlook Send/Receive Progress"
which shows the number "# of # Tasks Have Completed Successfully".

Mine shows the number of tasks growing exponentially. The email stays in the
Outbox. The only way for me to stop it to shut down MSOutlook.

Any ideas. Thanks in advance.

There should be an error message associated with this. Please post it in its
entirety. The error is the key to the problem.

Does anything in the outbox have a very large attachment?

You are onto something here.

There is an attachment with the email (257kb) which I did not think was that
onerous.

I have sent a 'test' email to myself without any attachment and everything
worked fine.

Any advice??

Thanks

After reading numerous posts this morning, I tried this one.

Delete email with attachment which is giving me the grief.

Create new email, copy email address from Contact List to Notepad, then from
Notepad to Email. Attached the 250kb attachments. Then Send. Everything
worked fine.

Potential problem: A corrupt Contact List?? I synchronise with a PDA. I
might dwell on this issue a bit more.
