Hi,
My PC seems to be taking an age to recieve messages. I do have a few message rules for it to cope with, And I believe NTL are also trying to filter out spam. But it can take up to 2 mins. Is this normal
Win XP,AMD2800,512 DDR2700 & NTL B/Band
Oh yes! SP2 but it was slow before SP2

Thanks in anticipation

Do you have any AV software checking the incoming mail? If so, that can slow it down.

Hi, Yes I have norton A/V & Norton anti-spam, But these were on before the slowdown???

It turned out to be message Rules: as when all rules were deleted(by accident) my email is as quick as a flash/ But i downloaded 723 messages: so they were obviously being sorted through each time i access mail (my rule said do not download messages from server concerned)so they just sat there on my server.
