I have re-installed my Red Hat Linux release 5.2 (Apollo), after this access has become very slow. If I try to access server thru telnet or ftp it takes it's own sweet time to come. If I try to access my mail-box with a mail software, mail software hangs stating no response from the server.

When I send mail using pine, even to the local users it takes long time.

What could be the problem, somebody help me please

Is DNS properly configured? Try an nslookup on something that should be resolved by your DNS server, it ought to return very quickly.

Is the ethernet working properly? It's been entirely too long since I used 5.2 and I don't remember if ifconfig reports packet/errors/dropped/overrun/frame counts.

Why did you need to re-install? There might be a clue to whats happening now in the reason.

You were very much true, there was some goof-up in the DNS entries. Now the situation is that, it is working fine with pine, when it comes to email client software access it is still slow.

Now the access from telnet and ftp is quite fast, when compared to earlier.

Thank you very much for your continued effort to solve my problem.

Alright, lets figure out what's happening with the email client software. Are the clients running on the system, or are they accessing it from the network? When you say they are slow, is that slow to start, slow to download messages, or slow to send email?

I had to install IMAP rpm software, which enables pop3 access. Now every thing is fine, thanx for your efforts.

Well, that would explain why the email clients would be, well, real slow. Glad you figured it out.
