Slow to load incoming emails

Just recently my incoming emails started to take 15 minutes to download!!

Any one know why?



There can be many reasons emails can be slow to load all of a sudden.

First do a reboot “if you haven’t already” incase it’s just something going on in the OS.

If rebooting makes no difference, then check your internet speed to makes sure it hasn’t slowed down. is a good site to check speed.

If your internet connection speed is ok, then could be your mailbox on the server end currently has a problem and causing the slow mail loading. So check with your mail server tech support just incase they have any issues.

If your mailbox at the server end is ok, then might be problems with internet connections “along the way to your mailbox” that is then causing your mail to load slowly. If it is, those things usually resolve themselves within a few days.

So if it’s been a few days though and still slow loading emails, then other things that can cause mail to read slow is eg: Antivirus programs scanning incoming mail, or sometimes VPNs, or Firewalls / Security programs.

So if you have any optional programs like that installed “other than what comes with your OS”, try completely disabling those to test to see if any of those are causing the email to load slow.

Same here. Been happening on and off for a LONG time. Loads just fine on my phone using BlueMail so it’s not the email server NOR the internet connection.

Notice how they always blame something else other than their application? That’s to waste your time and hope you give up and just deal with it.

If its been slow to load emails since you first installed eM CIient for desktop, “we would need more information” on your specific issue.

Are the emails slow to load eg: “only with attachments & Inline pictures” loading in the body of the email ?

Or is it even slow to load emails “with just text only” in the body of the email ?

Also “who is your mailbox providor” and “what incoming mail acct settings” do you have ? Eg: Server address, Port and Security policy. blank out anything personal.

Also what version of eM CIient are you using ? and do you have Windows or Mac & OS version.

Lastly when you use Bluemail on your phone, “are you connected to the same internet modem / wifi connection” as eM CIient for desktop is using ? Or are you using your direct cellular mobile network ?
