Hi Sara,

Try downloading your emails using IMAP, this will help in dealing with emails with large attached files. This is so because the attachment won't be downloaded automatically, which is the main reason for slow mail download when using POP3.

Usually this issue is caused by slow Internet connection and / or huge emails. Check the speed of your local connection and ask your ISP for additional assistance. Also make sure nothing else is being downloaded.
