Darookan,

many thanks for your response.

I think that you may have identified an important factor. 

As I mentioned above it appears that on my system Webshield (ashWebSv.exe) does not get involved with the http-dav transactions for downloading Hotmail messages.  It appears that, for me, OE has a direct session to the Hotmail http-dav server.   

I guess I shall have to perform some IP logging since it is so fast for me I may be missing something. 

If Webshield is getting involved in the http-dav traffic, and since http-dav is not "standard" http then it could well be that delays or, perhaps, complete blockage could occur.

I think that something worth trying, until the Avast team arrives at a solution may be:

Terminate the Webshield provider.

In the avast4.ini file (probably in the equivalent of Program Files\Alwil Software\Avst4\DATA folder) look for the section headed [WebScanner].  Within that there is probably a line IgnoreProcess=avast.setup. Let's add Outlook Express to the ignored process list so the line would be edited to look like:

IgnoreProcess=avast.setup,msimn.exe

Save the avast4.ini file

Restart the Webshield provider.

Does that make any difference in downloading Hotmail with OE?

Do you have any proxy involved in your web access?

Hi folks

I done both directions given by Technical and alanrf, but it still didn't work... but I did the same as newmansion (stop the process ashWebSv.exe) and it worked fine. I also tried to pause the process, but it doesn't work either. It only works by stopping the process.

Any other ideas?  :)

Oh, I was almost forgetting: I have no proxy in this machine. Thx :)

No fresh ideas - sorry.

I do need to correct myself.  Today I traced the IP activity when OE was accessing Hotmail. 

The log showed that Webshield is intercepting the http-dav traffic of OE for me also.  It was too fast for me to observe when not tracing.

 ???(I'm having the same problem as you guys.

I have found that when when you Terminate the WEB SHIELD, downloading http mail from Hotmail & lycos takes just a few seconds as it should.

 >:( THE PROBLEM IS the Avast's Web Shield.

 8) To prove this just, left click on the avast globe in system tray, in the avast! On Access Scanner, select Web Shield, click on Terminate & choose from Yes or No. ;D

That's a little odd since MSN mail is retrieved by Outlook Express/Outlook using the same method as Hotmail.

I don't know about odd..If you are replying, you are telling me that you have an MSN account and understand this issue. Do you pay an annual fee for your MSN Email  that  I have done for 10 years??
