I would like to this the "success" meant just that.  After I checked the POP
extensions, restarted Evo, it seemed to get even worse.  It seems to be
stuck on synchronizing the folders.  Most of the times I have to "xkill" to
get out of the application.  I'm going to disable 3 of my pop accounts and
see what the results are.  The problem is 2 of my pop accounts have over 1k
emails on the server... so if I let it sit there, it'll take forever to
"fetch mail" then it fails.

About the two status.. based on my experience with this application, I can't
filter junk mail while it's fetching mail.  I usually have to wait.  So; I'm
guessing it's a single thread application.  I could be wrong, of course.

If I can sum up everything, here are my problems:
- Cannot get POP summary
- Stuck when storing mail into folders
