POP3 account not working on Windows 7 Print

  • 1


On some networks, Windows Vista® may not allow you to download large email messages or file attachments to a POP3 account. Instead, you get a message that the server has timed out.

Until Microsoft releases a patch or fix for this issue, you can disable autotuning.

To Disable Autotuning in Windows Vista

  • From the Start menu, select All ProgramsAccessories.
  • In the Accessories list, right-click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator.
  • At the command prompt, type netsh interface tcp set global autotuningl evel=disable and press Enter.
  • When the command prompt returns confirmation of OK, close the command prompt window.
  • You should now be able to download your email in Windows Vista without issues.
