I've recently moved to someplace that had a DSL internet connection to Satellite.  Although Satellite can be high-speed, there are issues with latency.  A round trip to a website and back can take as long as three seconds.

What I've found, since I moved to satellite is that it is difficult to get my Armada 2526 PBeM turns properly.  I've found that if I go to the multiplayer screen and click the get turns button, my 2526 seems to be locked up.  The cancel button doesn't seem to do anything.  I don't know how long it would take to do whatever it is it needs to do, as I've always Alt-F4'd the game before it finishes, after a few minutes.  Luckily, whatever it's doing, it does seem to grab the turns, so if I reload the game I can see them and play them.

Always Happened to me, i even thought it is normal.
I just wait for the screen to unfreeze and resume playing the turn.

Not sure if it's the same issue you're reporting, but I've always Alt-Tab'ed out of the game screen right after hitting the check new mail button, because if I wait a couple of seconds before doing it, the game freezes and I need to Alt-F4. I've gotten used to it, but it's kind of unconfortable.

Well, Until I moved somewhere with a Satellite connection, I never had to Alt+F4 out of the turn download screen.

I DID notice that the more e-mails I have in my g-mail account, the longer it takes to download turns.  Perhaps it always looks at every e-mail in the inbox, one at a time?  If it was doing that, with my 3-second round-trip per e-mail, that would explain why it's taking me so long.
