    Issue with Windows 8 Mail


    Hi everyone!

    I have been using the default mail client in Windows 8 without any problems for weeks... but yesterday I actually encountered a problem, maybe some one can help me!

    I tried to send an email with a large attacched .zip file, but it seems to be stuck in the Outbox Folder.

    I just want to cancel this sending, but I can't find a way to do that, maybe because the file is too large, and the client is always trying to send the email without any success.

    I tried to refresh, syncronize and also deleting and re-adding my account from the mail application... none of these worked.

    Anyone can please help me in deleting/canceling this email/sending ?

    Sorry for my un-flawless english, and thanks in advance.

    I attach an image showing the situation.

    With the app open, bring up the charms window by clicking the windows key + c. Then click the settings tab and go through them, it should be in there. BTW you can check all the settings this way for each app.

    There is no option which allow me to delete the sending of the email

    You are welcome and FYI, airplane mode is the same as turn off the internet connection.

    I know it's the same: that's why I used it
