    I received a legitimate email with a large PDF attachment. I am not sure how big. It almost completes and then hangs. I am happy to just get rid of it so that outlook will work again.
    Emails that are small have never been a problem to both send and receive. I have however also had problems sending multiple large attachments especially when attached from a network drive. I have disabled scanning of outgoing messages in anti virus. I would appreciate some pointers to where I could start looking to solve this frustrating problem.
    TIA - Gary

    Assuming you have a POP3 email account with an ISP, log onto their webmail page and then go to your POP inbox there to delete the large file.
