    Mail in Outbox won't send

    Hi everyone,

    I'm guessing that this may have been asked before, but I couldn't seem to find it... Basically I have about 15 messages in my outbox that won't send and whenever I try to send a new message it just goes to the outbox. This has been going on for about a week (unfortunately I only noticed the day before yesterday!). If anyone has any answers it would be much appreciated! (I'm using Windows 8 and Windows Mail - my account is a Gmail account)


    Best wishes,

    The Windows Mail App will automatically configure the settings for you, so that shouldn't be an issue. Do you have any Anti-Virus software installed on the computer? If so try disabling it.

    You might also want to reset your router if your using one.

Purpose of 'Outbox' in 'Mail' in Browsers & Mail
What is the actual purpose of the 'Outbox' file in Mail. Yesterday I sent out about 20 emails, I looked in the 'Sent' file today & only 3 had left, all the others are sitting in the 'Outbox'. Why?

Mail Doesn't Send Messages in Browsers & Mail
Found another issue with Mail. When you go to send a message, it will show in the Outbox, go away and will not show up in Sent items. It will show in Drafts, but only the header. If this is RTM, these issues need to be fixed prior to launch!
