email slow

  Daiol 12:51 22 Nov 2006

Hi,good day to you all.I'm using windows xp pro [genuine] outlook xpress for my emails,over the last few weeks the emails are very slow coming up on screen,there are times that i have to click on send/rec tab to get the emails through,eg today when i clicked on the tab an email came through my time was 11-37 & the email time stated 11-02 when i opened it up.They have just slowed down over the past 4-6 weeks.Any thoughts on the subject.Thanks in advance.

I don't use AVG, but can you turn "Email scanning" off and try it without to see if that alters things.

yes i can,but how has this developed within the last few weeks its been okay Thanks for replying

First of all, has it made a difference?
Secondly have you just upgraded to AVG 7.5. I know there have been some problems and that may be one of them.

Send yourself an email, copy one that took a long time to arrive.

rawprawn. I tried sending myself an email with an atatchment i sent it at 9min past 4 ,and it got here at 28 past 4.What do you think of that and i had to click on the send/rec tab to get the email.

To me it sounds more like a problem with your ISP than OE, which has no control over how long it takes to process emails en route.

Thankyou for all your help i'll just hang about to see what happens.
