I just experienced a rather strange phenomenon, or maybe it isn't that strange. Instead of using Mail.app I signed on to this email address with my laptop using OS 9 and OE. I downloaded email that had been sitting on the server that I should have gotten weeks ago, from people who claimed they had answered me all along.. Apparently this mail program failed to retrieve. It has been picking up other mail regularly, and all accounts are active. Is this common and what is the cure? I did notice the other day, that one of my accounts indicated that it had a 1 message in it, but the 1 suddenly disappeared after the retrieval stopped. Also, one account continually gives me the "cannot retrieve mail on port 110" error. Any ideas? Thanks.
