i am using msoffice 2016 pop3 and gmail is lightning fast, yahoo sometimes times out or usually takes very long.
FYI, it has been this way for sometime. Eventually the emails download, it is just not helpful if the email is important I want to see.
Stop with the unsupported Browser BS. You ‘click’ and nothing happens isn’t (or shouldn’t be) a Browser issue. Test your site with all Browsers and STOP writing for Chrome-Dome. It is NOT a standard, neither was IE 20 years ago!
