    Not much info provided - Downloading mail from where? Bad Internet connectivity? Lots of mail? Big attachments?

    Shut down the computer, unplug the modem. Wait at least 7 or 8 minutes. Re-connect the modem and restart the computer.

    Many times it's just the internet connection that needs to be reset.
