In using my OE6 (on my XP pc with Firefox) I normally get up to 50 emails each day; and when I click Send and Receive I can see the 50 messages being loaded. But today when I clicked Send and Receive I got the message that there was 4333(!) messages to be downloaded and the download began. I stopped after some 250 and cancelled the Send and Receive operation.
Whatever could cause that? Is there a way I can download just, say, 100 of these messages ... to see what may be going on?
FWIW .. when I go to the same email account using a different pc, I do not see any but a few messages waiting to be downloaded.
Suggestions? Thanks much.
