I find that the process will start again if I "kick-start" it by doing something else on-line. I usually open internet exlorer and when the email download hangup occurs again I refresh a screen in IE and for some reason the email download/send process resumes.
I use Outlook Express under Windows XP and have a simple dial-up connection.
Is there a fix for this or if not is there anyway I can automatically do something on-line (eg send a ping every 30 seconds or auto-refresh a web page) so I don't have to stand over my PC and keep refreshing a page every time I download emails.
Thanks for any help
