I have seen an OCCASIONAL problem like this on Mail.app ONLY if I have 
it set to check for new mail EVERY minute.  Some mail servers seem to 
report an error to Mail.app if they are queried too often.  When set at 
checking for new mail every 5 minutes, I have not had this problem 
unless the mail server was temporarily malfunctioning.
