    I just select them and delete - are you getting errors when you try to delete?

    Thanks for your reply.  Yes, when I "left" click, I get a message that says "Can't open this item.  Outlook has already begun transmitting this message".  When I "right" click, I get no response.  I know what I did wrong.  I tried to sent an email with a "too large" attachment.  It is too large to send.

    Not sure, but this generally happens, when if there is firewall/ anti virus installed or creates hindrance to delete this email and stuck it up. U can temporarily disable and try to delete this one... if it does not work, simply close OL. Click Start from task bar and select Run, where u type outlook /safe and click ok. Again try to delete the same.
    Other than, u can try to increase the limit, but without knowing more details, can not provide opinion here.
