Yesterday, I upgrade my RAM from 256 to 512, and see no appreciable difference in performance,

often I would get the your virtual memory is low, etc. message, I received one a few moments

ago, . .

I assume that the upgraded RAM does not effect Outlook Express , receiving mail with attachments, because I am receiving a piece of mail right noe and it seems that I am receiving about 1% every 30 seconds, meaning this will take about 50 minutes, that might be slightly exaggerated, but it seems to be problematic at this point and is the main reason I upgraded,

Please advise.

The slowness of your download is more a byproduct of OE, Internet connection, etc. Could also be your virus scanner doing it`s job.

Does the newly installed memory show up in system properties?

Yes it does, I believe that you are correct regarding OE, connection and scanners etc.

Thank you.
