Hi

I am trying to send a large number of emails in Outlook 2007 and currently

they are all in the outbook but won't send - and they have an icon by the

side which is an envelope with a clock over the top.

I dont know what this icon means, and whether its something to do with them

not sending?

Please help!

This means that journaling is enabled within Outlook or at least for these

items/contacts.

You can configure journaling via;

Tools->Options-> button Journal Options...

This should have nothing to do with the sending issues though.

What exactly did you do to get to this point?

Are these emails generated by a mail merge?

Do you get any send/receive errors?

Common causes of these issues are a sending limit set by your ISP or a virus

scanner interfering with the send/receive process.

Hi

Nope, Journal options not enabled..

It was a Mail Merge from Word that created the messaged.

ISP is a host with no limits

:-(

This is happening to me. I did do a Mail Merge to email and my virus checker

did come half way through and interrupt. Now I have 300 emails in my outbox

with the clock icon. If I open them up individually and press send again, it

goes away. Is there a way to do this all at once?

yours humbly,

I have the exact same issue. Journaling is not on.

I have used this outlook 2007 setup for for sending mail merge emails to my

clients over a year with no problems. Now for the last 2 days emails are

stuck in the outbox folder with the little clock on the envelope icon.

Send/receive button does nothing for it. All it says "Send/receive complete".

No errors.

If I create a new email, that goes right away.

If I open up one of the stuck emails, and click send, it will go right away.

But I possible cannot do that for over 1000 emails....

Help!!
