Late receiving emails

In the last few days, I keep receiving emails which I have not seen before from days or even weeks ago. The oldest is October 21st ! Luckily, I have not missed anything important but it does explain why I have had to chase a number of people for replies. I use Outlook 2000.

These "lost" emails include several from Plusnet. I am therefore tempted to think that there has been a problem with the pop3 server at soem time. Can anyone enlighten me as to what the possible causes could be and has anyone else had similar experiences ? Has this anything to do with the recent webmail update ? :?

Hi There

The webmail update is not something that would affect mail in this way as it is a front end to the mail and you are donwloading it to your machine from the mail servers so to be honest the problems are unrelated. As far as I am aware this is not an issue that anyone else is seeing, are they for a domain you used to have perhaps?

I suggest you post the headers here (with account info. etc. masked out). We might be able to see where they went then.

Here are just some of the headers. Unfortunately, most I had already deleted (using webmail) as poart of regular housekeeping.

The interesting thing is thats everal of them are from plusnet and therefore this does not involve any third aprty (or should not !). So presumably there is noone else to blame ! These headers have all been received during the last five days and some are really quite old - one dates from October 23, but that is also from a plusnet subscriber and therefore there is again none else to blame !

We need the full headers - not just the short headers. In Outlook you access them from View, Options. They will look something like:

Oh dear, too late. Having copied and pasted the headers meticulously, I then deleted the old messages completely, so I cannot get them back to see what has been going on !! Doh !

But the next one I get ....

Thanks.
