OE6 hangs when receiving email

  Phate 08:27 30 Apr 2004


I'm running windows XP Professional with 1.25gb ram and a 120gb harddrive.

I've noticed that recently outlook express seems to hang everytime it tries to receive e-mail from the ntlworld server. Note that this occurs halfway through receiving email and is usually sutkc on a specific message e.g. message 58 of 69.

Is there any way to stop this from occuring?

Can you get something like mailwasher to check the mail that is causing the problem? You may be able to delete it without having to download it.

This could be the buffer at your ISP's end, it does tend to happen sometimes when you receive a lot of mails. Try downloading the freeware from Mailwasher, mind you this sometimes happens with also, but only for a couple of seconds.

Another thought; does NTL have an option for web based mail access? If so, log on and see the offending mail.
