Hi,
XP Outlook express takes too long to receive a message.  It takes nearly a minute to receive one simple email.  Rest of pc is working fine.  Please advise.

Thanks,
Joe

Try enabling logging and then send a message. Look at the log file created (should be listed in the enable logging section for location). See what it reports, if anything, when you send a test email.

Send two test emails. Send one to yourself, then send another somewhere else.

Is is only receiving email? or sending also?

Do you have any antivirus software or firewalls on the computer?

What sort of internet connection do you have?

1 thing I would suggest is to check if there are any updates for your network card. I know that is strange but I have seen this to be the cause with broadband connections of a few occasions in the past.

jstaron7--And as naughtynat has hinted, if you have set your antivirus program to scan incoming and/or outgoing mail, turn it off.  It is not necessary.
