First thanks to Andy SD for directing me to the Mustek E-service site for Win200 upgrade software. This allowed the download of the complete twain set for the scanner to be run in 2000/XP. It came in with 12 E-mails each with an attachment for files. These however did cause a problem They took FOREVER to get in and when eventually the system timed out, and I dialed up again the download startted from file one all over, and the mail stayed on the server. Thus I got lots of downloads of files one and two - time out -go on again- files one and two - ad nauseum. This was getting me nowhere, a call the the server helpline suggested trying the Web route - not having played with web-mail before- I was a bit doubious about what would happen - but it worked a treat - I found all the files and the attachments came in lickety-spit with the help of Down Load Accelerator. But the files stayed on the server and I havd to get the Server folk to delete from their end.
Question - Whats makes mails like this stay on and block up the server?
