Have you deleted the mails using your providers webmail interface?
While it is possible that you are receiving a lot of the same spam, it's also possible that
there could be a message on the server with a corrupted header. A corrupt header cannot be processed by your email client and will stop messages received after it from downloading. You'll have to go to webmail and start deleting.
After you've deleted in webmail, open up OE and see if it downloads what is left.
If not, please copy then paste here any error messages you get from OE.
Your statement about disconnecting CA concerns me. Either enable it OR uninstall it and reinstall another firewall and antivirus program. Without them, you are leaving your system wide open
to attacks and viruses.
If you don't want to continue using CA, there are some good free products you can install.
You'll find a list of them here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.htmlcctray.exe
is a tray icon for Computer Associates Security Center interface.
However, you stated you get CA Common Tray is trying to access the internet. Application: C/program Filed\CA\C...\CC Tray Exec
Are you sure that's what it said?
I don't know anything about CA, so I can't help you with that issue. I posted the difference between the 2 names so it won't get missed by others who can help you.
