Outlook Express Hangs at 'Receiving Mail' stage.

  Richard Madeley 15:00 27 Apr 03

I'm using Win Me and connected via NTL.

Outlook Express 5 loaded fine and connected to the mail server but when it said 'Receiving Mail' my whole system slowed to a crawl, OE then eventually says (not responding) in Ctrl/Alt/Delete box. I then had to do a hard reset.

I've tried a search in Helproom and done some of the tips there but to no avail. I've deleted the .dbx Inbox, Outbox etc files in C:Windows/Application Data/Identities in cae they were corrupted. I've also installed OE6.

Is it NTL or is it something else?

NTL have been upgrading their servers lately this may be causing your problem click here for the server status or it may be your settings in Outlook Express click here
