Hi All,

Hoping you can assist with this problem that keeps recurring every now and then.

For some reason I cannot open emails with larger size attachments, it's almost as if it won't download it. When I try to open it, it shows a progress bar running above the reading pane but then after a while it just says it cannot open it.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Diane,

Thanks for the speedy reply!

My Auto Send and receive was set to 30min, I have now set it to 5min as you suggested.

It seems to be mostly 5MB and up but there is a little folded stub that appears next to the closed envelope which I have seen appear next to mails of 3KB in size however the smaller mails can be opened. If I right click on the problematic mails there is an option that says mark to download where "open" would normally be. If I click it the stub then gets a blue arrow pointing down obviously showing it is now marked for download but it never does nor can I ever open it. This is really frustrating, hope you can help :)

Thanks!

So I managed to solve the problem :)

The issue has to do with the connection, larger emails take longer to download and if there is a problem with the connection somewhere then it times out without telling you, unless you understand error codes. I tested it with a better connection and it works 100%.
