      In Outlook go to Tools, Accounts, highlight your email account, click Properties, Advanced, uncheck the box that says “leave a copy of messages on server”. Hope this helps, cause I can’t really think of anything else off-hand.

      I have come across a similar problem on a customer site who dial up to access their email, it could be that you are being disconnected from the pop/imap server before download completes and a possible problem is that there is an email sitting with a large attachment that causes the connection to timeout, go into tools within outlook then mail accounts, select the account in question and go to properties, then advanced and set the server timeout to approx. 5 minutes. You should also carry out what the other answer suggests as well at the same time. If this all fails then you should contact your ISP and ask them to check your mailbox on their email server.
