Best thing to do is, this helped me:

1) File > Work Offline

2) Close All Programs

3) Restart Computer

4) Open Outlook

5) Highlight Message clogging your outbox, SHIFT + DELETE to permenantly

delete the message

No need to close all programs or restart the computer. Just stop and restart

Outlook.

Set Outlook offline and/or disconnect from the internet and wait a few minutes for outlook to stop trying to send it, then delete it or open it and remove the attachment. If it's really large, it may take some time for Outlook to stop sending it, so be patient.
