    Well at 22.19 Tesco.net service status says everything OK. How do you KNOW
    they are taking a long time to get from Tesco to your machine?

    You can watch some clues about what is going on in the OE status bar.

    OE/ View/ Layout/ Basic section - check Status bar

    The status bar lives down at the very bottom edge of the OE folder view.
    When you are in the Inbox, it tells you the # messages, # unread and
    further to the right it has a 'working online' section and a section on
    the far R about the engagement with the mailserver which tells about
    connecting, authorizing, etc.

    If you watch your status bar during the interaction of send or receive
    or send/receive, you may sometimes get a clue about what part is going
    on the longest.

    There are some other strategies involving activating the logging
    function in maintenance - troubleshooting, but very often that isn't as
    helpful as seeing/watching the status bar.

    You can also tinker with some telnet routines to determine if the server
    is pokey or something else.

    1. Are you on dialup? 2. Is someone sending you pictures that are *way*
    too big? say BMP's or jpegs over 100KB. 3. If neither what *is* included
    in the message, specifically attachments and their size would be
    relevant. 4. Is the message plain text or (for some stupid reason) is
    someone sending you a formatted document like one from word?

    To Summarize, We don't know how fast you're getting what we don't know
    you're getting.
