Large picture blocking Outlook Express

How do I stop an email from a friend which has a large picture which it is attempting to load to my Outlook Express stopping me receiving all other email?

Can you go into your web mail and delete it, then have a friendly word with your friend?

Your ISP will be able to provide you with details of the procedure to "see" the list of messages in your queue and delete the one causing the blockage.

This free spam blocker will let check your email before you launch Outlook Express to download it. You can see the subject, from address, and file size, then check a box to delete it from the server. You can add email addresses to a blacklist for automatic deletion. After processing your mail in Mailwasher, you can have your email program launch automatically.

I find that it saves me from visiting my mail server to delete unwanted emails. A few still get through, but it reduces the amount of trash that I download to my PC.

Can you not do away with the preview pane in OE so's you can see the list of received mail but delete those which you don't want or are causing you grief , before opening?

"View/Layout" and uncheck "Show Preview Pane".
