mail.app gives odd message for received mail - Mac Applications & Software

    Default mail.app gives odd message for received mail

    Today when I attempted to read some incoming mail I received the following
    instead of the normal message contents:

    The message from [...] <[...]hotmail.com> concerning [...] has not been
    downloaded from the server. You need to take this account online in order to
    download it.
    The [...] is where identifying information has been elided. The actual
    message included the identity of the sender, the sender's address, and the
    title of the message.

    This has now happened in conjunction with the last half-dozen messages sent
    to me by this one party. Messages from other persons are being received just
    fine. All of the messages I send are being correctly received, even when to
    the person from whom I'm not correctly receiving messages.

    Many thanks in advance if someone can identify just what is going on and just
    what needs to be done to fix things, whether that fix has to be made by me,
    by the party sending me the messages, or by some service in between.

    As best as I can figure, this is caused by Norton Anti Virus working in
    the background. I've found that eventually the messages do show up in
    the mailbox. But until they do, there's no way to remove them.

    Many thanks for the response. Norton Anti Virus isn't even installed on my
    system. In fact, there is no automatically initiated, say running in the
    background, anti virus software.

    Although there are several emails sent to me that will not open, subsequent
    emails from the same party will. So it appears that the problem has
    disappeared just as mysteriously as it appeared. Who knows!
