Why is my outgoing transaction still showing 0 confirmation?

Please note that all outgoing transactions are first sent to a  mempool waiting to be processed by miners. Then, miners may choose to process the most efficient transactions based on the transaction fee or the transaction time. 

Thus, you may see 0 confirmations even when you have initiated the outgoing transaction if your transaction has not been picked up by any miners, and often you will get an unrecognized message when you try to search for the TXID of the specific outgoing transaction. This is because most blockchain explorers will only provide transaction information that is confirmed by at least one node. Please refer to the following diagram:
