trouble shooting pop3 timeouts

By keith.morse ·
client ---> Token Ring ----> Linux based gateway/firewall ---> 802.11b wireless ---> ISP.

From the client W9x based using Outlook Express to the pop3 server using Post Office, the pop3 session will timeout trying to retrieve email. The clientand server will converse, authenticating and recieving list of emails, then will timeout trying to retrieve emails. Looking for any pointers/suggestions. Thanks

You can edit the properties of the account you are using. In the advanced tab there is an option which you can use to "qualify" the time you want the connection to wait before the "Time Out" message, from Short: 30 seconds to Long: 5 minutes. I hopethis help.
