POP3 Email Problem

By taisn ·
Can anyone help me in finding the solution that why POP3 emails starts downloading again in Outlook Express from the beginning if the dial-up connection is dropped in between. Have configured Qpopper as well but still the problem persists.

The problems becomes severe and panic if there are large number of emails on RedHat Linux 7.2 server and the connection sometimes drops due to line problems.

I would be very thankful if someone gives the solution.

When Outlook connects to the pop3 server it can see how many messages are there to download.

Once the download starts, outlook does not start to remove the downloaded messages until ALL of the messages are download.

This is the way every e-mail client I know of works.

You need to find out why the connection keeps dropping.
