What makes an email hang up in the Outbox? It seems to happen unexpectedly. Can I disable the Outbox so that active mail being created remains visible? How does the Outbox work? What rules does it follow?

Can I disable the Outbox so that active mail being created remains visible?
No.

What do you use for antivirus? When you say mail is hung up, do you mean it has the send icon but won't send or is the icon the draft icon?
