Hi. First, what mail service are you using?

Second, the outgoing settings are the SMTP settings for the account. Sometimes, it helps if you enter the username and password in the SMTP settings, even if it says "optional".

Thanks Diana for your assistance, but with all due respect this problem has affect multiple users, simultaneously, from different locations out of the blue.


So it is not a "settings" issue.


Needless to say, in my case the issue has gone away, through no effort of my own. I simply went into each e-mail in my outbox about 6 hours ago, pressed Send, and they cleared. I hope this has been the case with you also, rj.
