So I click on “Stop” and get an error box saying “The processing of requested tasks was interrupted.” So I close that box and again click on “Send/Receive” and the whole process starts again. After doing this 3 or 4 times, I finally receive my mail. This started only a few times a week; now it is every day. Any thoughts on why this happens? My friend thinks I have a virus.
1. Go to your webmail site > logon to your account > delete all the messages stored there > exit webmail site.
2. Open WLM > top left, click the blue button > Options > Email Accounts > click your account > Properties > Advanced tab > under Delivery, un-check " Leave a copy of messages at server " > OK when done.
3. What AV ( anti-virus ) do you use ?
If it has e-mail scanning option, and if it is enabled, please disable it.
Hope that will help.
