Email problem... (finding host) ???

    I have a dial-up connection which, for the most part, I don't mind. I
    never get disconnected and although web surfing is very slow it is at
    least consistent.

    What's not consistent is my email. I use Outlook Express for my pop3
    email however often when I'm either sending or receiving email....
    sometimes I have to wait anywhere from 10 seconds to as much as a
    minute while it says (FINDING HOST). This gets so frustrating and I am
    just trying to figure out if it's MY COMPUTER... or server side
    related?

    Another thing that I hate. I'll be in the middle of sending an email
    with a decent size attachment and I will get a message saying the
    SERVER UNEXPECTEDLY DISCONNECTED.... or something to that efffect.

    Any ideas as to why this is happening? I have had dial-up for about 7
    years, and these issues were never the case until the last few months.

    Thanks in advance
