erratic delivery of e-mails

in a new computer, new user, using OE, with Tiscali ISP. When starting OE appears to do send.rcv on starting and reports no new messages. Looking at ISP site into mymail, there is mail present (some has been opened - presumeably previously downloaded, but not deleted?). Sending mail to self it will return after a send/rcv in about 3/4 mins. Other mail still sitting on ISP server.
Problem - sometimes it is working, sometimes it is not. Why?
Also why is mail flagged as open at ISP (presuemably downloaded) not deleted? HAve not read any mail at the ISP server only via OE on local PC.
