Wannado Broadband - Slow e-mail connection

I having used Wannado for several years. Recently it has become very slow in connecting Outlook Express at start up, irrespective of the time of day or night at which I use it.

After a minute or so, a 'timed out' message appears, with a box on which I have to click - sometimes over 50 times before I receive my messages.

Is this a general problem or is there a fault in my system? Mozilla Firefox is unaffected.

Help would be appreciated.

I'm with Orange (was Wannado) and don't have any problems. I am using Outlook 2003 but that shouldn't make any difference.

What are your pop settings? Mine is set to pop.orangehome.co.uk

When you send a mail try CC to your own address and see how long it takes to return.
