Customer Question

Tried to send an email in outlook - it froze and left the message in my outbox....and then nothing worked as it was persistently trying to send the message. I tried to delete the message out of the outbox...I tried a lot. Nothing happened. Then the message suddenly disappeared from the outbox (yey) but outlook is still trying to either send it or synchronise my trash - either way I now cannot send or receive anything...it's been 3 days :(

Thank you! It says Windows 8.1 on the system settings

Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.
Hi, thank you for writing back with that information. Can you please tell me what email account do you have in your Outlook? Is it Yahoo Mail? Hotmail? Gmail? or others?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

OK, bear with me as I am devoid of all technical capability - our email outbound is through bt: Outgoing mail server (SMTP) - mail.btinternet.com

Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.
Oh ok. So your email account in your Outlook is ending with @btinternet.com and that is from Yahoo. Can I remotely access your Windows 8.1 computer so that I can directly fix the problem while you watch?Remote access is an optional additional service offer with a minimal one-time flat fee ($15) regardless of how long it will take me to fix the problem. We can resume any time without additional cost. It is safe as you will be watching your screen and we can chat right there, and it will be a faster mode of help.Please let me know if you want this remote option.Best regards,Jess
