Cannot find outgoing message which keeps failing

Bug Description

Due to other bugs with the new mbox protocol (#861064), I have a message that was sent to my service provider's SMTP server that it won't accept. That in itself isn't the problem here, but for completeness I've attached the error block that I see upon starting Evolution.

I think I should be able to clear this condition by simply deleting the message from the outbox. Since it didn't get sent, it should be there. (If it was sent, it would be in Sent, and Evolution would stop trying to send it).

My problem is that I can't find this message to clear the error. Consequently, every time Evolution starts, it attempts to re-send the message, and I get this same error.

Another consequence is that I get a message upon quitting that there are unsent messages. Since I can't send them, and can't delete them, I also can't get this message to go away.

By the way, the error is because of the invalid e-mail (from address) on my mbox account, which my provider (who uses Yahoo's servers) has quite rightly found wanting.
