    Default E-mail probs.

    When downloading mail into my Inbox,it hangs on message 64 of 200ish.
    It waits and waits,then gives up.

    This prevents me from receiving any subsequent mail.

    Can I view or delete this particular message.

    Running XP,Outlook Express.

    Cheers.

    Funny you should mention this because I'm currently experiencing a similar problem with an email account my webhost is, er, hosting.

    You might be able to use Mailwasher (from here) or something similar to delete the offending email(s).

    I wonder what's causing the problem though...

    How about trying to change the timeout?

    Are you runing an antivirus program like norton as I had a similar problem like this and when I turned off norton protect just on the email. Then downloaded all the emails and then I turned norton back on before opening any.
    Keep It Real!

    That was it !!!

    Turned off Norton Anti-Virus and Spamkiller,and all the craps now pouring into my Inbox.
    I'll go clear it out and turn them back on again.Kinda defeats the purpose,eh !

    Thx everyone for their help.
