    Error sending files with Outlook

    This is bugging me!
    My Outlook program (2002) seems to have stopped sending emails with attachments. I get error message - 0x80040109. The emails will go through Outlook Express though, so I know it is not a server restriction. I have Googled the code up found no real answer to sole this. The sending bar runs, but the email remains in the Outbox. Anyone know what could be causing it? OS - XP.

    switch off your AV and then try sending a NEW message (delete the original!).

    Outlook has been a right pain recently, having trouble receiving messages, the bar sits half way and then asks me for a password and then fails. Sometimes it works but is very temperamental !!

    Tried that, but same problem. The mad thing is that I have exactly the same setup on other computers with no problem.

    does it give any more info on the error message? like in the top border of the box? Could be a problem with an outlook add in .. for example winzip companion... do you zip the files ?

    Check your SMTP setting, the important thing is possibly the broadband provider you are using as they sometimes block other carriers settings.
