Make sure the attachment size isn t too large
Large attachment sizes are the main reason why emails get trapped in Microsoft Outlook Outbox. The majority of email service providers don’t permit attachments larger than a few MBs. For instance, Gmail has a 15MB attachment size restriction. Trim the attachment size or send the attachments in separate emails to ensure that your email is delivered. Additionally, you can get rid of the attachment by transferring the email to the Drafts folder, right-clicking it, and choosing Remove.
Make sure that Microsoft Outlook is connected to the internet
When Microsoft Outlook is unavailable, all emails you send are moved to the Outbox. By checking at the status bar at the bottom of your screen, you may determine whether Outlook is online. Nothing is wrong with your Outlook account if it shows Connected to: Microsoft Exchange. You should verify your internet connection if it shows Disconnected or Trying to Connect.
Change your password
You must update the password for that email account on Outlook if you recently changed your email password. For Microsoft Outlook to function, the passwords must be same. Go to File>Account Settings, choose the email address you wish to change the password for, then type the new password to change your Outlook password. After selecting Finish, your password will be modified.
Check delay settings
When you push send on an email that you had planned to be sent at a specific time, it immediately goes to your Outbox. Only at the appointed time will they be dispatched. Check your email account for delay settings if you wish to send the email immediately.
