Our office shares one email acct which we all d/l from, so the messages must remain on the server!!
When I upgraded OL, i imported all the old mail from exress to try to prevent a re-download (we're on dial up here.. ouch!) but it didn't work. I can't get the connection to hold long enough to d/l all 3000 messages, so it keeps restarting and not really getting anywhere. I don't even need the old messages, just need to start d/ling the new ones! Any ideas for a workaround?
