Does not delete messages from server
Authored by: msk on Jun 02, '03 08:20:01AM

I also have observed this problem, and I agree it seems to be a timeout problem with the POP server. For me it only happens at home over the dialup line to my ISP's server and never at work with the EIMS server I run.

My best guess is to reduce the number of Blacklist servers but I'm betting the problem is that one of the best and therefore first server listed is reacting slow.

An alternative would be to tell OS X Mail to leave your email on the server for a little while in the hope that that way it won't try to sent the delete command after your POP server has timed out.
