Emails stuck in outbox have upgraded from Outlook 2007 to 2010 and the same problem exists. Never had this problem with Outlook 2003.

Email receipients are getting my emails often up to 40 times before I am aware of it. The process I have to go to, to delete these emails is not acceptable. Late last night I had to get out of bed after receiving a text from a friend saying she had my email 22 times and it was still coming then I had to restart the computer and go through the deleting process. There needs to be a hotfix for this problem as it is clear Outlook 2007 and 2010 both have this problem. I have been using Outlook for years and never had this problem. Started using windows live mail when I purchased a new computer which operated on Windows 7, but was not happy with it, therefore purchased Outlook 2007 and have since upgraded to 2010, but the problems I am experienceing with it are as I said no acceptable and clearly from the forums, not unique to me. The forum answers are of no help to me, the deleting process I had already worked out and the profile changing doesn't work.

That issue is very often caused by an Anti Virus email scanner that has gone rogue (which they ALL eventually do), are you running one? You might also have a damaged Outlook profile, creating a new one may help:
