    Send/Receive Process Times Out (2003)

    It's been a couple of days now that Outlook connects to the incoming-mail server and starts downloading the mail messages but then halts the download, shows the message in the picture and then restarts and this results in the inbox receiving multiple copies of the each mail message. Is it a problem on the server side and so I need to contact my isp or do I have to change some Outlook settings?

    You might try increasing the timeout setting:
    - Select Tools | E-mail Accounts...
    - Select View or change existing e-mail accounts, then click Next.
    - If you have multiple accounts, select the one for virgilio.it.
    - Click Change...
    - Click More Settings...
    - Activate the Advanced tab.
    - There's a slider for Server timeouts; the default is 1 minute. Drag the slider a bit to the right, for example to 2 minutes.
    - OK your way out.

    If that doesn't help, you should contact your ISP.

    Thank you Hans, seems to be working.
    Strange the bottom part of my settings window is different to yours.

    Actually, the screenshot is not of my PC, it was an image I found using Google. I have the Dutch language version of Windows and Office, so it wouldn't help if I made a screenshot myself. The picture that I posted is for an IMAP setup instead of a POP3 setup. It was just meant to illustrate the timeout slider.
