tenny1204 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Goodday. I have written an emailprogram using net::pop3 with an ssl wrapper. My problem is that my program keeps getting stuck when I write to my gmail account using hotmail f.e.,also when I have multiple messages The problem seems to be with retreiving the message, because it always hangs with(using debug for output):RETR 1,+OK message follows. And then it hangs and times out eventually. Maybe someone might have an idea what to do. It makes no sense to me why it matters if email was send with msn,gmail,yahoo etc. Thank you.

    eh? What does that mean? What do GMail and Hotmail have to do with one another?

    Posting some code might help....

      It means when I write the same mail with the same attachmenmts, if any, mail from msn doesnt come through while gmail or yahoo mail works fine. But that was yesterday. Now it seems to be working as expected, but i have other issues. Ty.
