Communication breakdown

Apologies to anyone who has been trying to email me. Someone has obviously sent me an email that is too big for my little Donegal dial up to cope with, or else is booby-trapped. The result? - everytime I try to get mail it loads up all the emails until it comes to this rogue one, then crashes. When you try again, it starts the whole process from the beginning again, crashing out part-way thru', altho' sometimes an additional message gets past.
I, of course, being completely techno-illiterate, don't know how to fix this so any suggestions vis the blog would be welcome.

Valhalla! I am coming!

You can usually go into your mail account via your ISP homepage and delete the offending mail via a web screen and not the mail software you are using. Once its deleted you can return to normal software use.

Hey Brian, I think I have to put my hands up and take responsibility for the above. Trust me to F*** up important communication channels!! Thing is I thought I would send you a great pic of Mussendun Temple "in the grey" since you are getting such great sun over there. I know how you love it in all weather. Also I just wanted to tell you I love this blog - It is just like talking to you - and Chris Vallance's commments are so true. I am, as always, so proud of you! But so sorry for my big email! And what's worst I don't have a bloody idea of how to fix it. Try just deleting the email along with any other "bigger" MB docs. Also double check you spambox and delete any crap in there. If this doesn't work let me know cos on Monday I am teaching (Eng) to an IT class so I'll present the problem to them and get them to list all possible solutions- I'm sure one will work. I promise not to send any attachments on future mail. Love, Rach

an easy way to fix this is to go to

you just put in your email address and mail password adn it'll show you a list of what waiting for you on the server, and you can tick and delete whatever you don't want.
I use it for checking email when I'm away from home, but I had the same thing that's happened to you happen to me a while ago, and this worked well.

Hope that helps...
