    Mail Stuck in Outbox. How to remove or delete?

    I have 20 emails that appear to be stuck in the Outbox which I would like to permanently delete, but thre is no remove or delete Tab or option that I can see. Your help with this issue would be appreciated. Thank you.

    I am running WIndows 8 Pro.

    Open Windows Explorer.
    Open :C:Users\(Your Login)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail.
    You will find your Outbox there and can delete.

    Leave your email 'Outbox' open, turn off your Wi-Fi, after a few seconds a 'Delete' trash bin icon appears in top right corner, (well in mine anyway). Delete all your emails in the 'Outbox'.
