Windows 7: Outlook 2007 only sends some messages

Outlook 2007 only sends some messages

This one is a doozy [at least to me].

My first configuration of Outlook 2007 [Windows 7] accessed three different accounts on three different servers. When I tried to send out an email, it didn't go anywhere, and when I reopened it, it said "this email has not been sent. This email will be sent by [name of default server]. Thinking the problem was all the different accounts, I deleted all three and reinstalled the default account [please note that the entire time i've the three accounts on my Outlook using the same settings on my laptop with no problem]. Now it says "this email has not been sent".

The really odd thing [and I'm hoping this is the clue that cracks the case]: not only does the test message send; when I reply to it, Outlook will pluck it out of the outbox, while leaving behind a message written by me!

How is any of this possible???

6. Click the More Settings button.
7. Click on the Outgoing Server tab.

Thanks for your reply. Not all of it pertains to me as I do not have AT&T. What finally worked was having my IT clean out the computer with a variety of utilities like C Cleaner and Clary Utilities.
