An already prizewinning writer, was wanting to send
His book, that I had edited, out
To enter another contest, and needed to depend
On the file I have hanging about.
The file is a large one, and when on Outlook it was placed
It stuck in the Outbox, which then seized
That programme up completely, and I found myself thus faced
With no way I could do as I pleased.
It wouldn’t allow me to delete the large attachment;
‘Send and Receive All’ refused to move;
But, as I found later, with no feeling of detachment,
Each reboot a new one sent would prove.
‘Control, Alt, Delete’ can give you ‘Task Manager’ to try:
‘End task’ may then problem seem to sort;
But when restoring ‘Outlook’ you very soon will spy,
That no real solution you have bought.
In fact, the only thing that will provide a proper fix
Is switching off current at the main,
For this, then, when combined with all the other little tricks,
Does get the whole thing working again.
