I have a number of websites that I admin, some are on the same servers. 
If I query the pop accounts individually I get an error "already have an

behavior (a slap to  whoever coded that).  By forwarding all the

well, what do you want us to do with errors? just printf them into

If the window pops up and steals your focus, that's a window manager
problem afaik.

um... have just been sacrificing chickens to this god as I had not
thought I could do anything about it.

Don't have the global picture-don't know if your code knows the nature
of the error.  Ethernet does a back-off recovery upon collision. 
Eventually it times out but it very often succeeds.

pop errors have no machine readable component.  either something wortks
or not.  we have no real choice but to present any errors to the user,
because they might be soimething important.

To minimize my problem I use prime numbers to config how often evol.
checks mail e.g. 11 minutes, 13, 17, etc. for the various accounts. 
This greatly reduces the frequency of errors but does not eliminate

Clear as mud? :-)

i'd ask the sites you admin to fix their pop servers config up so it
lets you connect multiple times.
