    I tried sending an e-mail with several hi-res photos, after realizing how large they were, I resized the images and sent it again. The problem is, it is still trying to send the larger photos and message. I can click on the x by the outgoing message sign in the lower left pane but nothing happens. How can I cancel this message?

    Some ideas:
    Deleting the outgoing email message
    Open Activity Monitor and Quit the process

    How do I get to the activity monitor? I tried deleting the outgoing message but it still shows up there.

    If you use Spotlight you can just type in Activity Monitor and it should turn up. If not, it's located in /Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor. From the window that comes up you'll be able to see a list of running applications and processes. You can sort by app name and find Mail. I'm not sure that quitting it will resolve your issue though, but is worth a try.

    Use Mail control to cancel the send

    Go to Mail>Window>Activity and look for your send activity. Use the big red STOP sign next to the activity to cancel the send.
