Cannot delete message in outbox
I've had this problem in the past and my only solution was essentially
creating a new pst file, which I'm trying to avoid here! I sent a relatively
large file (well only 4MB), and instead of going through it has gotten stuck
in my outbox. Whenever I try to delete it, nothing happens, and if I open it
Outlook 2003 gives me a message to the effect of "Cannot open message,
outlook has already begun transmitting it..." Any ideas on how I can resolve
this? It's a huge nuansce as any message I send takes forever to go through,
and this one message is of course never going ...Ghosts?

When I click on Send to send a message, I get the error "Some errors occurred

is sent everytime I click on Send/Receive. I continue getting the error and
the message continues to be sent until I delete the message from the outbox.

Upgraded my laptop from Win2K to XP, Office 2K to 2003 - all at once.
Previous Outlook install included two profiles - one for online, one for
remote. Both profiles use the same 3 PST files.
Problem is - in one profile I have three "ghost" folders that aren't normal
They show up between my primary storage file and my other .PSTs - with no
names and no properties that I can see.
When I try to open, show properties, delete (in short, do anything) with one
of these folders, I get the message "The set of folders cannot be opened."

I had 900+ emails to send to a group of physicians that I
have on a list.
About 100 of them went immediately, and the rest
seem "stuck" in the outbox. I have closed and reopened,
rebooted the whole computer, done everything I can think
of, including opening individual emails and trying to
send again. Nothing seems to work.
They are not grouped, but were done with a mail merge
(word). I have Outlook 2003 and use XP.

We have a number of Outlook XP clients that when sending email it stays in
the Outbox until either they "Click" on the Outbox or "click" anywhere on the

refreshes and the email still appears. We are using Exchange 5.5. Does anyone
have a clue what could be happening? This problem started about a week ago.

Suddenly, Word is putting brackets around any text that I select--and leaving
them. These do not print, but it's confusing to have these nonprinting
brackets thrown in--sometimes hard to tell them from real brackets I've
inserted. In addition, I often send documents electronically, and then people
are facing this doc with these ghost brackets (which look identical to real
brackets on the screen). How can I stop Word from doing this?

In the process, I have tried twice to delete the account and recreate it.
Now each time I try to update my accounts, the deleted accounts come back as

I can resolve it?

Today I am suddenly experiencing a weird problem:
I cannot see some of the spreadsheets we have saved both on the desktop and
on the server. The files are listed, I can click on them, Excel opens but
the spreadsheet does not appear, I only see the light blue background; note
that on two fields in the toolbar, right below the Ribbon, I see the cell
number in the first and the value on the second; changing the cell number
changes also the value on the second field therefore the spreadsheet is
there, it is just not visible.
I tried to reboot both the desktop and the server but no luck.
I use the previous month's newsletter as a template each month. Whenever I open the file, there is a mystery font that is not being used called MS Shell dig. I click okay and ignore it. Is there any way to locate where the font is and remove it?
