    In Outlook Express is there a way to delete a download before it finishes downloading? Instead of just stopping it?

    do you mean that you want to delete a message so that it doesn't get sent to you - so you don't have to download it?

    Yes, that's what I mean. Someone had sent me a big file and then accidentally sent it again so I didn't want to have to download it again.

    POP3 server? If so, you could telnet into their server, login and then delete it right there.
    Or maybe they have a web-based option???
