Outlook Express Continues to Resend Messages

Outlook Express continues to resend messages after the original one failed and it is now stuck in your outbox. Has this happened to you? It is not a very common problem but it does happen. The fix is fairly simple and the cause is most likely a corrupt folder. Outlook Express continues to resend messages from the outbox when the outbox folder has become corrupt. This can also be caused by your email anti-virus program if it is set to scan outgoing emails.

The easiest way to fix it is to disable the outgoing mail scanning process in your anti-virus program. If that does not fix the problem then move on to the next suggestion. Which is to perform a search for outbox.dbx delete the outbox.dbx folder. When you reopen outlook express it will recreate a new outbox folder.
