I have a problem since installing ESS. Occasionally, the download of email will stop about 2/3 of the way through the first message. It's actually a lock-up. OE will then "time out" and I have to close the connection manually. The only way I seem to be able to clear it up is to go online to my earthlink account and read / delete the message there. My guess is it has to do with my ESS settings. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, how have you fixed it? Thanks.
