    outlook express 6 is not retrieving my email; its able to connect to the server because it shows how many new emails I have and it begins retrieving them but it stays stuck (windows task manager says it is not responding) until server times it out.

    sending out is not a problem.

    Could your 'Stuck' be that you have a huge e-mail to download.

    I have had this a few times but I can look at my e-mails at the ISP over the Web and delete view / delete them direct.

    Are you dialed up and can you look at your network traffic (during the 'stuck'), if you are receiving data then you're likely not stuck, just taking a long time to download.

    Maybe this helps.
