Outbox in Outlook

MS really should know better.
I had a spare subscription to MS Office 365 so opted to load it on Mac as I've happily used Outlook since it started.
I had the same problem: large file with pics attached keeps trying to send itself but there's no way of deleting it because MS has mislaid the Outbox in Outlook 2011.
BY ACCIDENT I sent myself an appointment invitation from Calendar in Outlook with just a few words and the date in the To: line .... and lo and behold the Outlook box appeared with the invitation as an unsent file! I was able to delete the large miscreant file successfully BUT, by keeping the rogue invitation in Outlook (i.e. not deleting it) it's kept Outbox open.
Weird or what?

You'll need to create the email with smaller attachments. If there are no attachments, you can try copy/paste the contents into a new message and see if that sends.

BTW, for anyone following this thread, there is a script that will remove messages that you can't see in the Outbox. Note: it deletes them with no way to recover.

Using this outbox

Thanks for helping me find the outbox. It works but..
Ok, so I went into offline mode and yes, I could see the Outbox folder.
However, I can't drag any messages into it.
There are times when I want to send out several emaisl. I used to have them go to my drafts folder and after I've double checked everything, I'd drag all of them to the Outbox to send them all at once. At least that's what I used to do in Entourage. Anyone fix or figure out how to fix that problem.

Here is more info, I use FileMaker to generate emails that I want to send to students or club members. However, the email go to the drafts folder. Which I like because it gives me a chance to double check that everything is OK. I need to be able to drag all the files to the outbox instead of opening, one by one and then pressing send.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I don't think you need to go to the nursing home. "...MS is incompetent on a level and scale that should be criminal..." Count me in on that referendum.

How to delete from "Outbox" in Office 2011

A few commented that they'd like to stop the mail being sent to allow them to delete an email. RedpointRik offered a good solution. Here's a solution I used:

*go to the very top bar, where the internet connection is shown; looks like an old-fashioned ladies' fan, for my wi-fi

*click on the "fan" and select "Turn Wi-Fi off"

*now you can double click the Outbox in Outlook and delete the email.

Thanks a lot. That really helped.

It reports deleted mail too...

This gets worse.

I had the same problem, thanks for pointing out the progress window. I deleted the mail that the attachment was too big, but then it tried to sync the deleted mail, reporting every few mins the mail was too big!

So stop the progress upload, search the deleted mail locally and deleted there too..

Now it has stopped reporting it.

found a solution

Nothing else worked. Then I searched for the troublesome email, and deleted it from the resulting search box. Worked like a charm!

NB: The email appeared in the search box dated 1904! When I clicked on it, the correct date was within the email. But you may want to search for features other than the date.

Detailed instructions:
1) Click Edit at the very top of the page. In the drop-down menu, choose Find and then Advanced Find.
2) That will bring up an "item contains" box at the top of the page. Click the up/down arrows next to "item contains" to decide what features to search for. (The small + sign on the right allows you to add more features, if you want. I searched for the recipient's name, and for an attachment existing.) 3) Above and to the left of the "item contains" box, choose "all mail". The nasty email will appear in the search box, possibly among others.
4) Rummage through the search box until you find the nasty email. Click on it. Then hit the Backspace button and it's deleted.
5) Celebrate.

Thank God!

Thank you all for this...very helpful. I've had a large email stuck in my invisible outbox for 5 days now, which was holding up everything else. Thanks so much for the solution.

Where Your Outbox is!!!

When you are sending an email and you want to delete from outbox and dont seem to have an outbox ...

at the top of your email you have (Home) (Organize) (tools) tabs

Click on Tools.

Click on progress.

click on stop sync.

Your outbox then appears at the bottom left. Click on it to have it come up fully in the centre screen for you to deal with the emails in there. I found there was no option to delete on the actual mail. I had to go up to file at top left and then delete from there.

Outbox only appears when a message is just sitting idle and not being sent. Anyway, if you want to cancel a message from being sent, just go to windows --> Progress and click the x button.
