    Before I got my smart phone I had POP 3 and had no probs opening large vid

    attachments. 2-7 MB (Very Fast) or large text attachments in Outlook. Once I

    got the Smt. Ph I had to change to IMAP settings and have had numerous probs.

    I don't understand why it takes so long to open an attachment or the screen

    freezes in Outlook. Do I have a glitch, need to uninstall & reinstall, I

    think the install disk has a repair option go that route? Or is it just

    because this is a Gmail account which I have heard can give you fits. My ISP

    server is Clearwire.

    Why would getting a smart phone make you switch your Outlook account type?

    Your ISP person doesn't understand mail. You can do this with a POP account

    as well. Just configure each client that needs to access the mailbox to leave

    a copy of the messages on the server so that when the next client accesses the

    mailbox, the messages are there to be seen by that client. Designate (in your

    mind) one client to be the master and configure it to delete older messages

    after, say, five days so that your mailbox doesn't fill up or simply train

    yourself to log into the mailbox periodically via a web browser and clean out

    the messages you no longer need.
