problem with 'Ghost' messages

Hi everybody,

Although my outgoing box is empty, it seems that my Outlook 2007 is trying
to send a number of messages whenever I launch it and at regular intervals,
as if it kept in some "cache" memory those messages I couldn't send before,
due to, I assume, some problem with my Internet provider. I since use
another provider.

I just don't know which messages it is trying to send and after some delay I
get this error message indicating that "Outlook cannot connect to the SMTP
server... (error 0x80042109).

Is there a way to see / to clear all the messages queuing to be transmitted?

many thanks in advance for your kind help.

with best regards,
Daniel

Could it be a stuck read receipt?

Hello Roady,

many thanks for your kind help.

Unfortunately this didn't help. Since then I did some research and found
out that my second Internet provider by default blocks all SMTP except
their own. I deactivated this feature in my account settings and it now
seems to be working OK.

again, thank you very much for your time and concern.
best regards,
Daniel
