This morning I've checked, and read, my mail, I've checked the new

browser for a bit of stuff, I found that I could not get new
messages, well..... the message header info would change, but the
old message text still displayed.
I clicked on several messages, one at a time and waited for the
"Done" to appear in the bottom line. But the message content did
not change, didn't matter if I checked a new message or a message
that I had already read.
Then I switched back to my mail account and the same thing. First
email I clicked on, the header info changed but the message pane
was empty. Tried others....about the forth email I clicked on, the
body did display, then that message body stuck when I clicked on
other emails, but again the header info changed, just the body
content stayed the same.
I've switched the View|Message Body As from Original HTML to Simply
HTML to Plain Text....no change!
Now to read my emails or NG posts, I'm having to click on the
message then click "Reply" to actually read the message.
Daniel (who may or may not be able to read your replies!!)
what happens when you restart the program?
Peter, (I've got your disease where it's taking more than a couple of
minutes for my message to appear on this server!!)
I've restarted SM. Interestingly, this time it was the browser that
started up first, then I had to start the Mail section and it seems
to be working now. At least the message bodies are showing.
We'll see how we go later!!
Started up all o.k. this morning!!
Don't know what happened....nor what happened to my first reply to
I'm having exactly the same problem since some weeks!
The only solution I found is to switch off SM but when I try to restart
it nothing happens. The only way is to kill SM in the task manager.
Then SM works again perfectly for several hours or even days!
Next time it happens I will see if the reply button works as for Daniel.
I'm using Windows 2000.
if you shut it down and its still in the task manager,
then that means it hasn't shut down properly. There
are 2 possible solutions: 1 is to kill it using the
task manager, and the other is to delete the file
parent.lock [or .parentlock or whatever its called for
*IMPORTANT*: Sorry folks, but I cannot provide email
help!!!! Emails to me may become public
