Thanks for this forum I kept my sanity, and was able to delete up to  three emails  stuck in my outbox. MS help tells you to right click on the email and choose delete - and yes I checked - that was for win 8. I have a touch screen. Obviously they don't eat their own dog sh&*&^^^t

From the testing I did my emails were getting stuck because of too many BCC recipients. My email was short text telling all my contacts email address had changed. If I attached more than three BCC the email would get stuck in the outbox.
