|Send/Receive Stuck in Endless Loop (Outlook 2007) [message #468757]

I'm using Outlook 2007 on a laptop with Vista. I have a POP/SMTP
server. My Send/Receive setting is set on "Send immediately when
connected." I have two email accounts - one business, one personal -
routed through Outlook and I've increased the amount of time between
checks for email to 30 minutes from 10.
Every now and again, usually on a message with a distribution list or
an attachment, Outlook gets into a continuous, non-stopping loop of
sending and receiving messages. For example, on Friday I checked the
Send/Receive details to find that Outlook had completed 108/108 tasks
before I shut it down.
This is a chronic issue. While it is not an every day event, it is
often enough tobe problematic. This is particularly so because the
message stays in the Outbox and so I don't know if the person has
received my message or not - particularly when I use a distribution
In my most recent test, I sent 10 people a Bcc of a post addressed to
me with a 155 Kb attachment (pdf file). Outlook immediately went into
numerous iterations of the Send/Receive task. I did receive the
message - wo it apparently gets to the addressee, but I have no way of
knowing whether the people I Bcc'ed the note to got it because the
message is still in my Outbox (completing task 60 of 60.
While all this is going on, I seem to be able to receive email as I've
gotten several messages while Outlook was in the endless loop.
Any assistance that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
