Email stuck in outbox

In windows 7 I have a rejected email and it keeps reminding me to send. MS has a fix for Vista but Zero on Win 7. Any suggestions, Thanks

You can just delete it or remove it. If just that wont send there may be something wrong with it.

I of course tried all the removes/ deletes there are. The email had an invalid address and was rejected by MS and remains in my outbox but I can't call it up. It's just stuck and keeps reminding me to send it. this occurs about every 10 minutes..

No mention of the mail client.

Have you tried navigating to the folder in Explorer (with the mail client closed) and deleting it from there?

Tried it in safe mode (F8)?

It's gone !! the message seemed to self destroy on it's on after being around for 3 days. I did go into GMAIL and that seemed to start the removal action. WE should tell GMAIL that they have a cleaner for MS screw ups. Thanks for reading. Wilfj
