I use MailWasher, H+BEDV AntiVir Personal Edition freeware, ZoneAlarm, PCDoorGuard2, InterMute (aka AdSubtract), and Finjan's SurfinGuard Pro. It happens even with MailWasher turned off. Entering the password on the Password Dialogue pop-up seems to make that go away for awhile. From the mssg that the pop3 is tied up with another pop3 session, I get the impression they're swamped with new customers from taking over another county near here and haven't got enough equipment to handle everybody. It used to happen only in the mornings (rush hour), but now it happens almost all the time.
