Trouble with larger emails and timing out.

    Trouble with larger emails and timing out.

    When I try to download my emails form my Gmail account to Windows mail, it
    generally goes well, but if the email has an attatchment that is over say,
    1MB, I get the message below.

    "Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for
    this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of
    inactivity. Account: 'Gmail Account', Server: 'pop.gmail.com', Protocol:
    POP3, Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F"

    Is there any way of bypassing the 5 minute server timeout? I am on Dial-up,
    as we cant get broadband where I live. It is annoying that I cant download
    large attatchments into windows mail because of this. I dont recall this
    problem with windows XP, and Outlook Express.

    Any Ideas?

    Thank-you

    Re: Trouble with larger emails and timing out.

    The reason for the server time-out is probably your antivirus.
    Configure your antivirus so that it does not scan emails.
    Also, Windows Mail is not compatible with most McAfee
    or Norton security programs. Those will need to be
    uninstalled, not just disabled.

    After uninstalling your non-compatible antivirus, download
    and install a more compatible antivirus like the free Avast:
    http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html

    Even compatible antivirus programs will need to have their
    email scanning option turned off. For more on this topic see

    I have kaspersky anti virus. I did the disableing etc, but it didnt improve
    it. My guess is that Windows mail and equivilant software for vista is made
    for broadband connection (maximum 5 minute timeout) and not for dial-up. I'll
    have to set up my old PC with windows XP and see if that works.

    Re: Trouble with larger emails and timing out.

    Even with a dial-up connection, there should not be a time-out
    unless the server is overloaded. I'm sure that Gmail's servers are not
    overloaded. I have three Gmail accounts, and they have never timed-out.
    With email scanning turned off, Kaspersky AV is not likely to be the cause
    of the time-out. So, I'm at a loss to come up with another likely cause.

    To rule out your Vista as the cause, you can install Mozilla Thunderbird,
    just to see if that cures the problem:

    Check the state or current setting of TCP Auto-Tuning

    Open elevated command prompt with administrator’s privileges.
    Type the following command and press Enter:
    netsh interface tcp show global

    The system will display the following text on screen, where you can check on
    the Auto-Tuning setting:

    Querying active state…

    TCP Global Parameters
    ———————————————-
    Receive-Side Scaling State : enabled
    Chimney Offload State : enabled
    Receive Window Auto-Tuning Level : normal
    Add-On Congestion Control Provider : none
    ECN Capability : disabled
    RFC 1323 Timestamps : disabled

    Disable TCP Auto-Tuning

    Open elevated command prompt with administrator’s privileges.
    Type the following command and press Enter:
    netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled

    Enable TCP Auto-Tuning

    Open elevated command prompt with administrator’s privileges.
    Type the following command and press Enter:
    netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=enabled

    Dear Daniel. I have suffered the same problem for the 2 weeks I have had my
    vista on a new pc. And I could not run java applets too.
    With a little help from my isp I performed the above action, as the problem
    should be a speed problem of vista auto tuning.

    It solved all my problems, so I am very happy. Hope it will work for you too.

    Gmail's servers are fully compatible with Vista's auto-tuning.
    This only affects a few older mail servers.

    Whatever you say Gary. But Daniels problem looked exactly the same as mine
    and what I did certainly did the trick
