    I use IMAP/Gmail with the Mail app. I sent a message which apparently had a bad address, so "sending failed" and the message was "put in the Outbox". Now I have "1 unsent message" at the bottom of the mail screen. I have no "Outbox". Neither does Gmail. The message is not in Drafts, or anywhere else that I can find. How can I clear this "Outbox"

    Only solution I can think of is to go to options -> mail, then delete the account and then rebuild it. You then also might want to set up Gmail push

    Actually I have tried deleting and rebuilding the account, as well as push. I still have "1 unsent message". I think the "Outbox" is an artifact of the Mail app, but there is no way to get to it.
