Why does my e-mail sometimes (often lately) sit in my outbox for hours before being mailed?

Hi Jerry, if your email has a large attachment, it’s going to take a while to upload the attachment to the mail server. During that time, it will look like nothing’s happening. In your outbox, it will look like your email is still there, even though the message is actually in the process of being transmitted.When the “send” completes, when it is really done, only then is the email removed from the outbox and placed in Sent Mail. If you would like for us to review your account to make sure your connectivity is okay please send us your account and contact info to exedelistens@viasat.com
