Default why are my emails stuck in the outbox?

I have tried checking my settings ,but can't find anything untoward ( but then what do I know ) I have two emails stuck in the outbox for over 24 hrs now.I can't seem to remove them to something sensible like 'drafts' only the trash... why is this happening ?

This sometimes happens to me as well but not too often. If I remember correctly, it has only happened on my tablet. I assume your internet connection is good. After 24 hours they should have gone. What I did last time was to recompose the emails, make sure I had an internet connection and press send. Amazingly it worked properly and they appeared in the Sent file.

I vaguely recall having one or two stuck in the outbox but they had actually been sent

These errors normally occur when there is a problem with your SMTP (sending) server.

Check that you have used the correct "FROM" e-mail address, especially if you use several identities.

If necessary double check your settings for the SMTP server and associated security settings and PORT number.

Try restarting your mail programme.

If that doesn't work try using WEBMAIL (especially if its urgent).

Otherwise just keep an eye on it for a while.

I presume your are using windows? I have had the same problem when sending images, Regular text messages no problems,
It works better sending for me sending as an attachment rather than a slide show.
