    Only partial download (2003)

    I have Outlook configured to download from my Yahoo email account. This is on my laptop and via a WiFi internet connection.
    Some emails are only downloaded in part, cutting off after just a few lines. How can I configure so that all emails are downloaded in full? Or if an email is only partially downloaded, how can I 'retrieve' the rest of it? Thanks, Andy.

    Are you using an addon to connect to Yahoo or do you have a Yahoo Plus account?

    Hi. Neither, it's just set up as a pop-mail account.

    Does my service include POP access? - Yahoo! Mail says you can not access your Yahoo e-mail with POP unless you have Yahoo Mail Plus (which is not free). See YPOPs! :: Free POP3 and SMTP access to Yahoo Mail! for a <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> product that supposedly allows this.

    This doesn't make sense to me. I don't have Yahoo Plus, etc., but I go in to Outlook and Send/ Receive will download all my Yahoo emails to my Inbox.
    I've checked the settings and it is configured to download all emails, including attachments. It might just be a problem with one particular e-mail - this has two attachments, but I don't normally have problems downloading these. Andy.

    There could be something unusual in the attachments that is causing Outlook to hiccup. What happens if you access it via the web interface? You should be able to download the attachments there.

    Everything is fine if I use Yahoo via the web, and I can open the attachments without problem. I was hoping that I could tell Outlook to 'retrieve' this specific email again, without having to forward it to myself, etc.?! Thanks, Andy.

    as a test, can you forward the e-mail to yourself so it won't be lost. Then go into Outlook and delete the original partial e-mail. Does that remove it from Yahoo? If not, then try a send/receive to see if it will be downloaded again.

    Forwarded it and it is now received okay to my Outlook Inbox. I'll assume this was a one off. Thank you for your assistance. Andy.

    Well, I'm just glad you got it. Maybe the Yahoo server had an issue the first time. Thanks for posting back.
