Is there a way to change the oreder in which OE retrieves mail from your accounts? I have several mailboxes, which are all automatically checked every hour or so. But one of these addresses is extremely slow in retreiving mail and sometimes requires 2 or 3 tries.. Unfortunately, this is the 2nd in the list, meaning I have to wait a long time to get my other mail.
Is there any way to change the order in which OE acceses my accounts? Then I could put this one last.

Only thing that you can do is take that 2nd account out and put it back in. That will put it in the bottom posistion and will be checked last. Also make sure the first one is set as the default account.
