    I've read the instructions to fix it but don't know how to search for the command prompt thing. Can anyone help. I'm desperate as I need to be able to send emails.

    Right click on start button then select command prompt for admin then type "sfc/scannow" It takes a few mins.when done type "exit" then restart your mail

    Same issue. although the suggested solution has fixed. BUT.
    Im really sick of the biggest IT Co in world constantly giving us faulty products? this is an issue but MS didnt advise. Outlook 365 is dreadful and our co (2600 users) has switched back to Outlook 2010. MS please stop telling us to upgrade and then causing issues. One cant even call you to discuss! (has anyone actually tried and succeeded in getting onto a person at MS support? also I have bills on on CC for MS and cant tell what they are for AND the phone No you give for inquires goes through to Playstation support. and this from a huge "quality Co"
    End of rant

    I may be a bit old and slow but I tried following Riks advice and couldn't find the file to type into. I can get command prompt and I see a little black box in the left hand corner but then I'm stuck. Can anyone talk me through it in basic terms as I need my emails for my small business.

    I've done it at last ! you have to leave a space between sfcONE SPACE /scannow (sfc /scannow) as shown and then click on it an it starts up and takes about 20 minutes. Thank you rik I just hope it's not a temporary fix.

    I bookmarked this thread I KNOW this is going to happen to my father's PC when he upgrades it! He is always losing his ability to send from Outlook! Then he calls me in a panic and I have to come over and fix it. On the plus side I get a free meal from mom, and usually a bag of goodies for the road. LOL

    Just to confirm, the sfc/scannow trick sorted me out too. Just had to close and restart Outlook, and the emails that were stuck in the outbox were sent automatically

    I've run the sfc /scannow and received 'Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service'.

    I'm still stuck with unsent e-mails in Outlook 2013. Can anyone help with this please?

    The SFC/scannow worked to fix Outlook by repairing corrupted file (and disabled a Norton add in?)

    So saw this on another WindowsCentral thread.

    Click on the search icon, search on cmd when you find the application (Command Prompt) run as administrator (i.e. right click it and click run as administrator). You will then see a rectangular black window appear with folder> then type in sfc/scannow and sit back and wait (takes a while to run).

    When finished type in exit. Then close outlook, restart and problem solve. Seems to have solved the problem for a number of people on the other thread too.
    I thought it was Linux that required command line..?
