I would guess someone tried to send you a huge file and at that
time you did not have enough resources for it to d/l.
You could try to just d/l the headers and see whats outthere.
And if you actually want to get the file..you will of course
need to free up enough resources and try again as it says

You don't happen to be with Sprynet, do you? I had all kinds of problems with any email over about 250k in size. It would always clog my mailbox. At the time I was using Netscape mail, but I had to switch over to Eudora Lite so that I could delete the 'large' messages off of the server and restore email flow.

I talked to Sprynet's 'phone-staff-you-can't-call-them-technical' and, of course, it was my fault. My email client was not up to snuff. He didn't have much to say when I told him I had tried it with Sprynet's proprietary client too.

I don't know if they ever fixed that problem. At the time, about 3 years ago, they had added a plunger to their web site so that you could unplug your mailbox. HELLO! Get a new server you morons.

I have long since abandoned them.
