[Alpine-info] Somewhat OT: Have Windows Updates Slowed Down
Communication with IMAP?

I realize this is an alpine list, and this question involves Outlook Express
and IMAP (I need to download Alpine (ReAlpine?) and try it in Windows; I
used to be a PC-Pine user.)
Over the past 3 or 4 weeks, (don't know when the problem began), I've
noticed massive delay in OE in communicating with IMAP.
Granted, I store lots of mail, but even so, sometimes it now takes four or
five minutes to poll my inbox and delete email after reading, whereas a
month ago it was an almost instant operation.
I've noticed this in XP on two different computers, communicating with two
different IMAP servers on two different machines.
I realize I've already committed a faux pas by bringing the question to
this list. But I know there are many knowledgeable folks here, and if any of
you have info about possible adverse Windows or IMAP changes, would you
please write to me privately?
If you know of a list or person where I can get more info, I'd be interested
in proceeding further in the proper forum or with a knowledgeable person.
Thanks for any assistance, and apologies for the off-topic nature of this
