Identify the Causes of Emails not being sent
- Network problem
- Junk files
- Caches and cookies
- Recipient not in the contact list
- Improper email address
Check your outgoing email server settings
- From the settings, navigate to tools > accounts
- Highlight the desired account and click properties
- Enter the correct server name in SMTP
- Verify ‘my server requires authentication’ is checked
- On the advanced tab, check the SSL is checked under outgoing mail SMTP
- Check the port under outgoing mail too.
Apart from the above solution, make sure that your sent box/outbox is not too large to handle the excess files. To check the size, go into the store folder and check the sent items.dbx file size. If the outbox is overloaded, move the messages from sent folders to another separate folder. Don’t forget to make your folders compact manually after moving the messages.
Another way of fixing the sending message problem is you can rename the Outbox.dbx file to Outlook.old. by doing so you will no longer be able to access your old outbox folder if by renaming, your problems get fixed then delete the new file that you made.
