Why does my email application (Outlook, Internet Mail, Eudora) hang up or stall on a particular message?

This usually occurs when your email application is downloading a large message, it often contains a file or a bitmap. Even though the email application is actually downloading the message, it would appear that it has stalled, especially if no visual cue or download status is shown . You may wait until it's downloaded, which may be a really, really long time, or delete it by going to our web based email system: mail.lvnworth.com. Make sure you delete the offending message, or the next time you run your email application it will attempt to download it again.
