I am still having the same problems.
I just ied it with Netscape 5 on an imac, running OS 9.2, with the same results. i am also getting "mailbox full" messages, but all I had were 7 saved PM's. Maybe the capacity is that small, which is fine, but the new mail icon won't disappear and the new message window pops up unless I delete the read message, or move it to a folder other than the in box.
Last night at home, using a different computer on a dial up, I was having the exact same issues, only worse due to the slow speed of the dial up.
I want to emphasize that I am very appreciative of the site and it's value to me. But this issue will make it impossible for to take a few seconds between calls and scan through new posts, or send replies to questions because of the time invovled in loading the pages.
53flyingcloud;
we're on macintosh here, and most of the sweepers you had mentioned will only work for windows, as far as I can tell.
And: all other sites work fine and efficient. So I doubt it's in the machine.

You should check your email account (PM) again for 'stuff' in the track message, send items and, inbox..
Need to put a 'check mark in the "box" and, then hit delete.
Try to clear out as much as possible. It should be okay to save a few things as it can hold a rather fair amount. (I just like to keep mine clean.)
You could be right about the Window version. I'll check again for you now that I know you're on a Mac.
Just did a quick check. Yep, you're right..Windows
btw, do you have Java loaded and, enabled on your puter?

ciao

Yep. Java be on and present. At least on the machine I am on right now. 47weewind's description of this pesky issue matches mine to a T.
The mailbox thing is not an real issue, just that i am not getting some of the PM's. I'll go check to see if there's hidden PM's in the tracking etc. folders right now.
Thanks for everyone's input.

Most folks don't realize that there is a sent message folder which can be the crux of the space problems since there is a copy of every thing you have ever sent in there.

I was wondering if the issue with site slow downs is still happening for our Mac users out there?

I had not noticed a difference in the past, but I was wondering if it was still an issue.

I took Jack's advice and deleted averything I could find in the "sent" folder. This helped with the mail problems, actually resolved them.
The pages are still loading slow at times, but i did have a few times when the pages loaded quite quick.
It was lightning fast for a few days after the server change. It is definitely much slower now.
I just make sure I have time to wait whenever I go on the forum.

BTW,
just now it was "lightning quick" again, not more than a quick blib on the screen before the page changed...

Just tried the edit feature - works great right now.

This Mac user has noticed a favorable change in speed, better than before without the hang-ups. Whatever was done - its working! Thanks.

Andy told me that there was a DNS lapse in the random ad generator at the bottom of the page. During the time period that you were all having trouble the banners were not populating. I was just wanting to see if now that they are working again(banners), the speed issue is resolved.

Glad it is. Thanks for the updates.

My system now works very well once again. No hangups, and quick page changes, just like before.
Thanks for fixing the problem.
