    @bureX:

    There is a "simpler" way, which is still pretty stupid. Hopefully MS will fix this soonish, I actually kind of like the new mail client (and the Modern UI part of Win8 in general) but these oversights are pretty shocking !

    Anyways, the fix:

    • disable your network interface(s) (Win key+W, type "view network connections", right-click and Disable your network connection)
    • open the Mail app and go to the outbox
    • there is now a delete icon in the top right for each stuck mail item !
    • don't forget to enable your connection(s) again Tongue Out

    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.

    You can't right-click on anything in a metro app. Right-clicking brings up the app bar.

    @leojameselliot:Thank you! Thank you! I have tried for two weeks to delete an email in my outbox with a video attachment. The email would send to recipient every time I turned on my laptop! Your suggestion worked perfectly. One less stress................
