    Hi guys,

    Hopefully someone can help. When email is downloading/uploading all my internet connection is jammed until it finishes.

    Ratboy,

    Are you using outlook express or outlook 2003?

    Is you virus software sanitizing you mail (ie for spam,checking blacklists etc) ?

    I also think it's because of the viruses.

    Check CPU usage when you're downloading. If it's high then it's the virus stuff at work.
