    When I send an e-mail with an attachment (any size) and I hit send it gets to around 60% done and stops. It then times out and I half to cancel the e-mail but then I talk to the person I was trying to send to and they say they recieved it multiple times. On my end it didn't get over 50-60 percent complete. Is this an ISP problem or Outlook? Does anyone know whats happening and if there's a fix. Thanks for any help.

    I have the same problem with Outlook XP. I have done considerable searching on the net and no-one seems to have a definitive answer. The best work-around I have come across is to increase the server timeout. This will improve the situation, but is not the solution.

    The setting is buried deep! Tools > Options > Mail Setup > email accounts > Next > Change > More settings > advanced. Move the slider out to 10 minutes.

    It appears the problem is when the server times out, it starts all over again, but the message has still been sent. It is exacerbated by dial up connection and busy server.
