    Default Long time to get E-Mail service

    Hi Forum members I need some help. XP SP2 e-Mail client is Mozilla Thunderbird. Browser is
    Firefox.As of about a month ago my E-Mail access takes 1 minute 10 seconds to get up but times out at that time. This is with Zone Alarm Pro running. On second klick to get mail it works just fine. With Zone Alarm off it comes on right away. Getting the Web browser up and running is similar. This all happens after a cold boot. Once I have
    been on both systems once it is faster and OK. I have turned off incoming mail check but it makes no difference. Hybernating the Computer solves this problem but it should not time out as it never did before. My ISP( Cogeco.ca ) advices to ask Zone Alarm for help as their sytem is running OK. I have the latest Zone Alarm updates 10-2-07. Your help would be very much appreciated. Anti Virus is turned off as I never had a Virus in the last ten years thanks to Zone Alarm I believe. Regards Peter


    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro
