    Hello,

    I am using Outlook Express and Tesco Net (modem, dialup) and Outlook Express. Outlook Express is trying to receive a large email, but it can't. It just stays on something like 10%, and then Tesco stops responding (I get a message asking me to Wait or Stop. I just want to cancel receiving this email, but I am struggling to find it.

    I am using Windows XP Home Edition.

    Thanks in advance,

    Ethanw

    Hi Ethanw,

    Log into your mailbox at Tesco and delete it there.

    and then set-up "message rules" in Outlook Express, not to download anything above 1MB from server or delete it from server.
    I had the same problem on dialup so I had to do restrictions.
    If I wanted to see what the mail is about, I do go to my IP's online mailbox, where you can see what kind of a file is attached without opening it or downloading.
    Sometimes it is a bunch of different pictures, where I click on only one and get an idea what it is (but only if it is from a friend, never a stranger,)
