I use Outlook 2007 for my email client. I often notice that mail is "sending" even if I have not actually prepared an email to send. For example, I prepared one small email to a friend just moments ago. After I hit send, the status bar said sending 14 of 14 messages. These don't show in my sent file either. Am I sending out spam messages without knowing it??? How do I figure this out, or more importantly, make it stop?

Not sure where you are seeing that number. My Outlook 2007 just sends the item it does not report numbers.

Xhi & CompWiz, thank you for replying.

Xhi, those numbers show in my status bar. I am attaching a printscreen so you can see where I see it. It's where the big red circle is. I'm not quick enough with the print screen button, but that same status shows quantity of emails that I send and receive and shows "Sending 11 of 11" or "Receiving 3 of 3".

CompWiz, unless there is something I don't know, yes I definitely check for stuck emails. I literally sent one email all day long just before I made this post 3 days ago. When I sent that email, my status bar said "Sending 14 of 14". I keep copies of my sent mail and usually check the folder to make sure they show up in the Sent file right after I send it. The one that I intended to send was right there and my recipient received it just fine.Print Screen

This thread says that it is an issue with Outlook that adds N-1 to he write county here N is the number of accounts being read/sent. Seems to be a common complaint. http://www.techtalkz.com/micro.....wrong.html I would not be concerned.

Well thank you so much. Guess I'll cross that problem of my list. :-)
