If it were converted to IMAP, it would live sync just as you seem to have experienced. POP keeps a record of what mail is already downloaded. Perhaps that record was lost somehow. IIRC the record is...

My guess is that the account was POP3 and was somehow converted to IMAP, perhaps by BT, which is a live sync situation. If so you should be able to spec in Outlook which folders to download.

I don't see why you couldn't use the built-in Windows Transfer utility (migwiz) at menu/all programs/accesories/system tools. Save to a file rather than direct transfer.

Without a password on the account, the Task setting ~run only when logged in~ becomes critical. Try toggling it from what it is. Sorry, I'm not on windows and can't be more specific.

The next thing I would try is to pull the optical drives. Windows is having a problem accessing them, and perhaps one of them is causing the hangs. Worth a try.

If that doesn't change anything,...

If you pull the new hard drive is everything back to OK again? The only thing I can think of is a BIOS flash. Make sure all the HD connections are clean and good. Try reseating the RAM.
