I'm running XP with Outlook Express as my mail program.

It's been doing fine 'till recently. Lately, it's very slow to Send/Recv. I can't figure out what the problem is. Any history of this happening to anyone else?

Thanks much in advance.

firewall on or something?
also check your antivirus, it may be scanning your incoming and outgoing email attachments
secure encryption options may also slow it down

generally tho, i'd remove the account from OE and put it back in to see if it makes a difference

to avoid all the other networking junk, try it out in safe mode with networking
