Big delays on composing/replying to mail

    There was a thread about this a week or two ago on here. I'm having the same
    problem as another poster had - when replying to mail or composing a new
    one, there's a significant delay (sometimes more than 10 seconds) before the
    new mail appears. I tried the solution proposed before (as I had imported a
    list of contacts (also an inbox, sent items, etc.) from Outlook Express):
    saving my contacts as a CSV file, then deleting them and reloading them from
    this file. But this doesn't make any difference.

    Anyone else had this problem and found a way round it?

  2. Turn off email scanning of your antivirus software and then remove your
    accounts close and reopen WinMail and add them back again.

    Thanks, I will try that - then turn email scanning back on again?

  4. No. Leave it off. That's what is causing the problem or likely to be.
    Its redundant and just messes things up.
