How can I view e-mails before the attachment downloads?

When I receive a new e-mail with an attachment, it takes forever to open that 
e-mail.  Can anyone please advise?  It's frustrating to wait 5min. for one 
e-mail just to open.
Thank you!

Attachments aren't some separate entity distinct from the message. 
Attachments are part of the message body like any other text in the message 
and you cannot open a message until the message is complete.

That would be impossible.  Attachments are not floating somewhere out in
cyberspace nor are they separate of the e-mail.  Attachments are *in* the
e-mail.  There are only 3 sections to an e-mail: headers, blank delimiter
line, and body.  The attachments are MIME sections within the body of the
e-mail.  It all comes together.  All e-mail - and I mean ALL of it - is sent
as plain text.  HTML is text.  RTF is text with a .dat attachment to relay
the formatting.  Attachments, even binary files, have to get encoded into
long text strings (which bloats the their size by 137%, or much larger)
inside of MIME parts inside the body of the e-mail.  An e-mail is just one
document, not a document with separate attachments hanging on the teats.

At best, and to eliminate downloading huge-sized e-mails, you could
configure Outlook to not download messages that exceed a user-configured
maximum size.  You'll get just the headers for those big e-mails.  You will
then have to manually mark and then manually download the marked items to
retrieve the ones that you want, or delete the others that you don't want.

How long it takes to retrieve an e-mail depends on what type of network
connection you have but which you never bothered to mention (dial-up,
satellite, DSL, cable broadband).  Speed also depends on how much bandwidth
the mail server chooses to give you as it has many concurrent connections to
which it needs to balance that load and provide some response to all of
them.  The size of the e-mail obviously has an effect on how long it takes
to get it.  If you permit the superfluous scan of e-mails by your anti-virus
program then that takes time, too, to interrogate all those bytes.  All
security software, like firewalls, incur an impact on speed so if you go
hogwild in installing multiple security products to add a ridiculous
thickness in layering of protection then it all will impact the
responsiveness of your host.

Having problem of Outlook not receiving new e-mails
I have been using Outlook for over 1 year with Comcast Broadband.

Then I really got frustrated. I was eventaully able to get back to my old e-mails and have been able t...

How do I setup an SMTP gateway / smart host for Exchange 5.5 internet bound mail
My current setup has a Windows NT 4.0 Exchange 5.5 server setting on our company LAN behind a Microsoft ISA Server. The Exchange server's Internet Mail Connector binds to (I assume this is the proper terms) port 25 on the ISA server for inbound and outbound Internet Mail. Our company has finally upgraded to a new Cisco Pix Firewall which we are able to setup a DMZ on. The suggestion by our ISP is to setup an SMTP gateway in the DMZ and have our internal Exchange server send mail to it destined for the Internet.

Mail Merge Printing collated
When I print a mail merge (I don't use it for mailings and envelopes), Publisher prints out the first 5 records as an individual document then the next 5 as a seperate document, and so forth. Since I often need to make multiple copies of these documents, I end up having to collate them by hand. How can I get Publisher to print the entire merge as one document before printing the second, third, copy? I believe when I had P'03 it would print that way, but when I upgraded to '07 this problem started. You can't... Maybe later with a service pack these printing bugs will b...
