I just received my PC back from the factory after the HD died. I installed OE and created my account. It works.....for a while. Then for no apparent reason, it hands if I try to send / receive. The only thing I notice is my AVG software throws up a box in the system try with something about a POP 3 mail server (and this message is repeated over about 15 lines). I have to reboot to get things running but after a fer more uses of OE....it happens again.
