Some of my users dial-in, starting pulling the email down and
start surfing at the same time. If they do not get a clean 33.6k
connection to our ras server they are more likely to suffer from
this problem which suggests the Outlook Express is timining out
on the busy line back to the server.
This would explain why lan users are not affected.
Tools --> Accounts --> Account_Name --> Properties --> Advanced
--> [Server Timeouts]
Wind the slider along all the way to 5 minutes. This should keep
OE trying while the modem line is congested and maybe it can
squeeze the mail down during web surfing breaks :-)
Outlook Express supplied with IE5 does not fix the problem but it
may have a longer timeout default?
