  • Outlook 2003 SP2 mail hangs in outbox | Wireless Connection

    Team,

    I am using outlook 2003 SP2 in my Vista PC. OS and outlook patch updated. I am using Wireless connection for accessing Internet.

    Most of the time my outlook works fine without any issues. But sometime my wireless connection may interrupted abnormally, hence my outlook hangs and the mails in outbox stayed.

    In this i restart my outlook and works fine. The problem is i have to close all my opened mails (around 25) and have to restart outlook. It takes more time to do. and waste of time too. any idea without close mails and my outbox mails to deliver.

    your timely help very much appreciated.

    Thanks
    Manick

    Are you using Exchange or some other form of mailserver?

    In general, Outlook is very tolerant of network outages and should not behave like this

        SO what happens when you select "send and receive"? Does it give an error?

          I am able to receive mails, but sent mails stayed in outbox. If i close outlook and reopen means it works fine. but i have to close my all opened mails and reopen outlook. it struggles me to select which mails are opened previously.

            yes, but does SEND AND RECEIVE report any errors?
            If so, what are the numbers?

                suggests this is something to do with firewalls or AV software -- what are you running?
