    Occasionally someone will send me a long downloading email (or Bill Gates will send me a notice that one of mine was too big for Hotmail - and send the whole freakin attachment back with it - like I really need my attachment back Bill.... I already have a copy, thank you !)

    So If I need to get on with life and would rather get the mail later and just tell OE6 to stop receiving mail - it stops but says FINISHING CURRENT MESSAGE.

    Is there a setting somewhere to stop this or is there some way to stop that last current message other than shutting down my connection?

    Know exactly what you are talking about.
    Don't know anything to instantly stop it.
    I have always shut down too.:mad:

    The way I usually stop that message was in Win 98 to press Ctrl Alt & Delete to bring up the close program box, then close msimn.exe and this will force the program to close.
    The other way would be if you use a firewall and block OE from accessing the internet. I use Zone Alarm and it has a big red stop button to stop all internet access, something like that would work until it stops then click the stop button to continue on your merry way. :)
