outlook express not downloading all my mail

  marsdenboy 09:04 20 Apr 2004

I use outlook express to retrieve my Gateway.net mail. Recently it's started downloading only the first few messages then getting stuck, and throwing up an error message that the connection has been "unexpectedly terminated". I then have to go to the Gateway site, download the mail from there, delete the spam (of which I get a lot), and Outlook express then works until the next time I try and download.

Any advice?

If you get a lot of spam, then the connection might be timing out before the process is complete. Set some message rules to ignore messages that are not addressed to you by name or email address. That will cut out the majority of spam and you might find it easier to download.
