I see (at least from this morning's logs) that you are bouncing back
and forth between pop and webmail. That is going to cause a problem
because webmail is using imap to access your mail folders. We (to the
best of my knowledge) have never recommended that people use both imap
and pop. The webmail server also uses a proxy service which holds an
imap session open for you (to make webmail accesses faster -- since the
web is stateless) and that is possibly causing your pop client to get
denied the ability to erase the contents of your INBOX.
As for a passive-agressive attempt to get people to stop using pop...
well, no, we're not that coordinated. We figure when your hard disk
dies in your PC and you've lost seventeen years worth of email, you'll
be ready to switch to imap and let us worry about making the backups for
