Here’s what you do when your emails are stuck in outbox
Sometimes your emails behave confused and get stuck in outbox in Microsoft Outlook 2010 instead of being delivered to the person intended. Do you know what you could do in such situation? Sometimes you send someone an email and they complain that they haven’t received any. It is at times like these that you would find the email hidden in outbox. To avoid such situations, we have a few simple best practices for you. Now you can stop worrying about the emails not being delivered.
Send/Receive All Folders
However, let’s deal with this situation first: What do you do if you find your emails get stuck in inbox? On the Outlook Ribbon, you would find the tab named ‘Send/Receive’. Select that option and click on the option ‘Send/Receive All Folders’ to try sending the email again. After you click that option, a small window would open which will show the progress of the ‘Send/Receive’ of all the folders in Microsoft Outlook 2010. If your mail is sent, then you have completed the process. If, the size of the attachments in your email is large, then we have another solution for you.
If your attachment is too large to be attached to an email, you need to reduce the size of the attachments in the email. You can try using applications like Winrar and Winzip to reduce the size of the attachments in the emails. Once you reduce the size of the attachments, you can try sending the email once again.
You would also face this issue when the email server is offline. When the email server goes offline, all the emails that Microsoft Outlook 2010 is in the middle of sending, would be saved in outbox. To check if the email server is offline, you need to check for the ‘Disconnected’ option on the right-bottom of the window. If you see that message, that means the email server is offline and you have to re-connect the server for Outlook to send and receive emails again.
