Vista + Email = :(

Recommended Posts

mitchjs    0

I installed vista RTM & Outlook 2003

i cant receive ANY Emails...

this is just POP3 email, nothing special

it logs into server and says like.... "receiving 1 of 5" and hangs there till it times out

never downloading more then 49K

i also downloaded Thunderbrid email client, same issue

All other networking seems fine, IE7 works nice

i did some FTP, i even did a bit torrent...

disabling the firewall changed nothing...

this is just POP3 email, nothing special

searching the net, its like im the only one with this problem...

im thinking its in the networking somewhere...

i got broadcom gigabit nic onboard (ABIT-AW8)

anyone else having email problems?

or have a thought...

i basicly cant switch to vista till this is solved...

I think it has to be something on your side, with your provider or something. It works fine here for me both in Outlook and Windows Mail.

your right, just access your email from the web, delete message one and two, and keep testing outlook. It sounds like a corrupted message, common problem, if you have 100 messages waiting and number 49 is corrupted you won't get any email to download to Outlook. If it stops at "one of five", quite possible message one and/or message two is corrupted, deleted it should work fine.

I experienced this problem on Windows XP SP2 with Outlook 2003 as well when trying to download all the mail from my Gmail account. My only solution was to download all my mail into Outlook Express (Windows Mail in Vista) and then import it over to Outlook, then set Gmail up to download only new emails to POP3.

Im a little smarter than that guys!, there are no corrupt emails, XP on same machine gets em fine.

infact i boot to xp, read my email.. then boot back to vista...

say i read all my emails, then send (from another account) a email with a simple 400k attachment

VISTA wont get it!!

its NOT outlook, its vistas new fangled TCP STACK or the NIC Drivers!

ITS VISTA or the NIC drivers!!!

I also discovered, i cant copy/paste files from remote desktop in vista

it starts to copy, but never finishes...

so 1: vista, 2 NIC drivers (which vista is suppling)

I GOT IT!!

ok, its a VISTA / LINKSYS problem

with the new vista networking and its TCPIP Scaling (self tuning)

it appears that it exposed a bug in alot of LINKSYS Routers

(many complaints on linksys forums)

I have a RV042, Linksys already has a beta firmware for the RV082 which addresses this issue...

when i turn of its internal firewall, Everything is fine...

I didnt want to loose some of its protection

so...

at a command promt

netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

that will disable vista from messing with packet size

when the router gets new firmware... ill do

netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal

this is a good FYI...

Hey man, when u used netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled did it increase your other overall uploads/downloads? Also, when using the normal command after the = sign, will that put things back to the way they were?

Thanks!
