Incoming email slowing down ... then stopping

I quite often watch my incoming mail start downloading quickly. Then it slows and often stops completely for up to 30 seconds before resuming.
Is this my iMac + Mail or something else I wonder?
Kind Regards
Hugh

Re: Incoming email slowing down ... then stopping

Do have any software installed that could be scanning your mail as you download it? I can't imagine that being a prominent issue for some Macs compared to a lot of PC users but still worth considering.

That is a good point. I do have Sophos Anti-virus installed. I'll do the test.
Many thanks!
