E-mail VERY SLOW
Posted 28 June 2004 - 07:27 PM
A while back, I downloaded Sygate's free personal firewall, which I really like, but I noticed right away that something was wrong when I clicked on the little envelope icon to check my email. It takes about 30 seconds to go to the inbox, then when you click to open an e-mail letter it takes another 30 seconds. Also, when you send mail it stays in the outbox for a while before sending. Checking my mail used to be a breeze, now it takes forever. If I use the "Hotmail" link on the MSN home page it is not as slow. But I prefer to use the MSN mail on the browser bar.
I am pretty sure the Sygate firewall created this problem but when I exit it the mail is still very sluggish. Disabling the firewall from start-up doesn't change the e-mail problem either. I read somewhere I may need to set Sygate to open a certain port or something but that didn't work.

I have lowered security settings and tried CTRL+SFT+F9, but still have the same excessively long delay after I click the MSN mail icon or any MSN Mail link.
I guess I should maybe re-install MSN and see if that might fix this thing.
Why would Hotmail work but not MSN mail? oR, WELL, MSN does actually still work it is just unuseable because it takes SO long to handle mail. (Before it always went to the inbox instantaneously when i clicked on MSN Mail.)
If anyone can offer some insight I'd appreciate it?
