    I am using the email app that came with the phone. I have a message in one of my outboxes that I deleted but it still keeps trying to send over and over 24/7. The message is not visible because I deleted it, so I can't go into it to edit or re-delete. When I try to send all outgoing messages, all it says is Sending Failed : temporary server error, please try again later. If anyone could post a fix that doesn't involve deleting the email account, I would really appreciate it!!!

    It sounds to me that you should delete the email acct and then set it back up again and I am sure that will clear this issue. Only takes mins to set up an email acct again.

    Or perhaps even easier, do Settings > Applications > Manage applications, find the e-mail app, and select Clear data. That should clear out the stuck e-mail.

    Glad to hear it! I may need to print out your post and show it to my wife, who occasionally doubts my cleverness.

    Ummm... yeah, that is correct. Airplane Mode disables ALL RADIOS in the device (Mobile Data, Voice, Text, WiFi, GPS, etc), there is no connectivity of any kind when in Airplane Mode. The idea is to toggle Airplane Mode on, wait a minute, then toggle it off and retry again, not leave it in Airplane Mode.

    Airplane Mode is a little more unique than just toggling off individual radios in most devices... it actually unloads the drivers from memory, then toggling it off reloads the drivers again and often fixes off issues.

    I have the same problem. 3 Emails listed in my Outbox. All have been deleted. None of the solutions listed have worked; deleting the Cache, Airplane Mode.... Did you get a resolution?

    From your e-mail app, click left navigator, go into the settings, and set the e-mail auto re-send to one time, once the outbox stops re-sending the email limitless, you can delete it once it fails one last time. Good luck!

    I have a verizon Nexus that holds emails in the outbox that I thought were sent and don't want to lose. There's over 32 in there and I don't want to delete my account is there any other way to send them?

    I have the identical problem the way MT1414 described it at the top of the thread. I have tried the "Airplane Mode" method (even with battery removal) with no luck because the "deleted" outgoing message never shows up anywhere to delete it. I am motivated to avoid clearing data/cache because I have another e-mail account (without the problem) in this same app. I also want to avoid re-establishing just the account with the problem because of the data loss. Toggling the Sign-In checkbox doesn't work either. Is there any other (new) workaround?

    Sorry about the multiple posting. I was trying to 'reply' and hoping it would go up under 1BAMFR's post. Just ignore me; it's been a long, exhausting day.
