Hangs... like totally stopping and/or freezing, requiring a reset?
Does it pop up an error box, then disconnects and allows you to

Well... I'm going to suggest that your free space is just too tight.
Emails of larger size (>50K) will begin to give me problems if my free
space is in the 1MB - 500K range on my 24MB card.

Another possibility I've experienced: There are the odd messages that
just cause Mail V to Hang for no apparent reason. Something is odd
about the content of that particular message. When this happens, many
times I'll bypass the bad message that's causing me problems by:

   Begin Receiving the messages again
   Tapping cancel (stop) just after that particular message begins to
   The "Been Read" flag gets reset with that message (& previous ones
   Re-Start the receive action again
   Mail V will begin downloading just after the message you hit cancel on

Hope this helps
