I tried to send my friend an email with an .mp3 file attached.

Since then, whenever Windows Live Mail syncs with my email account, I get an error message saying:

"Unable to send or receive messages for the Hotmail (username) account." It then gives the subject of the email in question, along with Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80004004.

I have checked my Sent messages folder, and the email I sent is not in that folder.

Is there any way to stop this message appearing, or cancel sending the email?

Edit: I have now noticed that whenever I have an incoming email, the message box comes up as well, saying it is trying to receive messages, which it never used to do. Although I manage to receive the incoming email, the other email that I tried to send to my friend still does not send, and I get the error messages again.

I've actually sorted out the problem now. I just had to delete the message from my Outbox.
