Have you tried right clicking them and marking them as unread?

The number of messages should be in bold, then Send/Receive should work.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks Derek,
Tried and doesn't work. Since it just happened few days ago I was wondering maybe one of the latest updates caused something basic to change.
I'm really looking for a s/w or set-up fixes rather than workarounds.

You mentioned "meeting invites". Does this mean that other mail goes out OK? If so I'm not sure what is so special about these - that might give a clue (attachments maybe?).

"I'm really looking for a s/w or set-up fixes rather than workarounds"
Sure, but the reason for #1 was to see if the system was somehow marking them as read and preventing them from being sent.

If you prefer to bypass diagnosis then try this:

Derek,
All my emails are being sent and rcvd just fine. i even tried sending a meeting invite to my other account with nothing but subject "test" and it still stayed in the outbox. However, once (don't know how) the meeting cancellation did go out.

Derek, I tried repairing it as suggested in your link and about 80% through, I've got this error message "error 1310. error while writing to file: C\Config.Msi\17b4c9b.rbf. verify that you have access to that directory"

Well, I sincerely hope you can at least back out of it and return to the previous situation. It should have been a perfectly safe move.

Having delved further I think the reported problem requires more specialism so let's hope someone else will pick it up. Sorry I was unable to help.

BTW, I just found out that the Outlook repair was failed since I had Spybot installed and immunized my files. Once removed, the repair process was completed but I guess the damage is already done, so I will have to reinstall Outlook.

Did you disable SpyBot Immunize then run the repair again from square one after restarting the computer?

It is odd that SpyBot Immunize affected it. It's years since I used it but all it used to do was block you from accessing bad websites. If you are running that wretched "T-Timer" facility then sure, it can and always has had the potential to wreck anything so most folk turn it off.

I actually uninstalled Spybot and run the repair twice. Everything seems to be working fine except meeting invite still don't go out. As I've said, I think Spybot had deleted something that was needed for that, so i will just reinstall my 2010 office all over again.

Sounds like Spybot has gone sour since I used to use it.

You might be better off with SpywareBlaster (that just blocks bad websites and is updated every two weeks). For more general checking MalwareBytes is very good, as is the little toolbar finder ADWCleaner.

Hope the reinstall goes OK - make sure you export all your Outlook stuff first if you use it.
