I am unable to get emails from the outbox to the recipient

When I create a new email it goes to the outbox but does not leave it even though I press send/receive. The program says it has been processed. I am online. but it stays in the outbox and is not received by the person I am sending it to. Strangely real short emails appear to work.

I have a new HP computer and XP SP2

Hmm, sounds like your smtp settings may be awry. Double-check the pop & smtp addresses with your service provider or on their website, and - i'm assuming you're using Outlook Express here - go to "Tools, Accounts, Properties, Servers"...

...then again, if small emails are going & others aren't - the above theory doesn't hold much water. Any particular size barrier you've noticed? Are you using dial-up, broadband or wireless? How many recipients?

They said they was using Outlook 2003 not OE

Go to Tools/Options and click on the Mail Setup Tab
Untick the box "Send immediately when connected"
Click Apply and OK

Also disable Outgoing mail scan in your anti-virus program.
