    Anyone know why my e-mail would start to download very slow? I have spampal and the mail worked normal for awhile then suddenly it started to go slow. I have norton antivirus and it didn't find anything. Any help would be appreciated.

    Very difficult to say without hands-on observation of what is going on... but slow downloads of anything may mean your connection to the Internet is busy with something else, for instance.

    I've also seen anti-virus programs go haywire and start slowing everything down to a crawl.

    As I said, very hard to diagnose with only what you say above.

    Need more info!

    Mine has slowed down once or twice, but I figured out that it was just a really big file. Contact your ISP and have them look at it?

    Thanks for the info. The problem was my anti-virus program. Everything's fine now.
