MAIL TIME-OUT WHEN INCLUDES A BINARY ATT

By sleigh00 ·
Here's our problem,

We are serving our own mail on at NT server using Eudora WorldMail. Have recently changed Internet providers. Prior to the change we had no trouble as spelled out below...

We can receive any kind of mail if we are on our own LAN or if we dial in to our own LAN. However, when anyone tries to receive their mail from the outside world, (via cable modem, ISDN, or DSL connection), they get timed out IF the mail message includes a binary attachment.

Does anybody have a clue as to the answer to this problem?

Any help will certainly be appreciated

Go to Control Panel,double click the mail icon,now check the configuration to see if you have settings that will timeout at any given time that you are receiving emails
Secondly check with the ISP to see if you have a limit restrictions on receiving emails.

A guess, could it be anything to do with UUENCODE (Unix) vs MIME? (non Unix).

Here is a guess...

If you are coming in from the outside World, you'll be passing through the ISP's firewall. It may be that their firewall is stomping on large messages or binary messages or something. I'd talk to your ISP.
