Only Downloads 260 Old Emails

Sat Aug 16, 2014 10:26 pm

I have a new computer running Windows 7. I have installed version 6.5.4 and set up my account (to my virgin.net account) and installed my key. The settings are the same as my old compute, which as worked fine for many years.

It works, after a fashion. When asked to check mail it always downloads nothing new but approximately 260 old emails, I assume starting from the oldest held in my virgin account, as they stared being 2008 mails but is now downloading 2011 mails.

Anyone any ideas what is wrong?

Thanks

I have solved the problem, well done it. I just kept going and it finally download al in my Virgin inbox, once it had done that it was happy and now works. There needs to be way to specify a date from which it starts to download, instead as in this case treating all mail as new and having to download and delete the lot!
