I'm using Sprint 1.12 and Versamail set to deliver only sender and subject when I press "Get". When I do that, the mail items arrive reasonably quickly. The problem arises when I select a particular message that I wish to view, and I press the screen icon to download the body of the message. There is usually a long pause (maybe 10-20 seconds) before the downloading even begins. During this wait time, there is a window on the screen that says "Inbox" with an empty progress bar. Once the download finally begins, it is quite rapid. This long delay seems independent of the size of the message. By the way, my ISP is sbcglobal, which resides on Yahoo.

This waiting period is very frustrating. Is this normal? Is there any way to fix this?
