Two email servers (incoming), one computer, different results. Why?
Posted on 2007-11-20
OS= Windows XP Home Edition. Inspiron 1510 notebook. My internet connection is an ADSL broadband, patchy (in Africa).
I have two email addresses: one is X@oceanfree.net, the other X@eircom.net
I have them set up successfully with Outlook Express.
When I open Outlook Express and click the send-receive button, the oceanfree.net address connects, authorizes and checks for mail in 10-20 seconds, while the eircom.net address takes about 4 minutes to connect, authorize, check and produce mail.
Why this annoying difference?
Is there any way to improve things?
