who is the email provider?

have you tried configuring OutlookExpress,to confirm/deny the problem is with incredimail or server.

i dont know incredimail but am assuming it is just an email program and not a provider.

The inbox in incredimail will only hold so much, try emptying the inbox.

it happens from time to time.

happened to me today.

When I turn on my PC, Incredimail is not auto-start, but once started, I leave it in the System tray. On the Initial connection this morning it 'timed out'. I just left it, knowing that the program is set to check mail every 20 minutes. On 2nd attempt it DL'ed my mail.

I wouldn't worry about it. Sometimes mail servers are busy and any mail program can time out occasionally. In fact I get more time outs with OE than Incredimail (I use both at work).

My work inbox (incredimail) is currently at 700MB. What's the max size it can be?

If you google Incredimail you will find absolutely 100's of complaints about the way it works, or not as the case may be.

It's popular I believe because it's good fun and there is nothing wrong with that but as a serious and reliable tool for e-mailing it has it's faults apparently. Half the fun of the thing is due to the (expected?) results it seems. It is free afterall. If it's not fun then dump it but if it is fun, live with it and enjoy the quirks and foibles and have fun but don't rely on it.
