Configure Outlook Express or Thunderbird to receive mails.
Ask the sender to resend the mail.
See what those programs do with it.
It could be a problem with the sender also! In fact, it seems like that.
I use Outlook 2003 with Earthlink (Dial-Up) as my ISP. Windows XP Pro, 80Gb HD and 512Mb RAM.
My problem is as follows: within the past few days Outlook tried to download a message with a 1.2Mb attachment. (I never had any problems with such e-mails before) The message could not be downloaded, an Outlook dialog box popped up telling me the ?operation had timed out?. I then received an e-mail from Earthlink telling me the message was in an ?Undeliverable Messages? folder at the web-mail site. There, I was able to read the message and see the attachment(s).
The same happened again yesterday: a message (from the same sender) with an attachment of 560Kb.
No problem receiving any other messages?
Do I have a problem with my ISP or with Outlook?
If somebody could enlighten me I would be very grateful,
