i have configured 6 pop3-accounts and when i use the "Get All New Messages" option from the 
"Get Msgs" Button, Mozilla only fetches the first 4 accounts. And even though all accounts are 
configured to be fetched upon startup, it only fetches the first 4

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure 5+ email accounts
2. try to fetch mail for all of them at once
Actual Results:  
see details

Expected Results:  
fetch all configured pop3-accounts

i have another exciting problem with fetching from a POP-Server. My Setup is:
(sorted in this order)

After a non-comprehensible ammount of time/fetches (it does not hurt, since i
forward this special account to another) the first POP3-Account is beeing
stopped from fetching. Nothing is been done, when all messages are fetched, or
this paticular account is been requested. An strace shows, that no
network-acctivity occures (in contrast to all other pop-Accounts). Closing
Mail/News does not change anything - the whole Mozilla has to be restarted. I
Use Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007. 

Is there a way to get more details for this special problem? The prefs.js 
user_pref("mail.server.server4.ageLimit", 30);
user_pref("mail.server.server4.check_new_mail", true);
user_pref("mail.server.server4.check_time", 5);
user_pref("mail.server.server4.daysToKeepBodies", 30);
user_pref("mail.server.server4.daysToKeepHdrs", 30);
user_pref("mail.server.server4.download_on_biff", true);
user_pref("mail.server.server4.hostname", "");
user_pref("mail.server.server4.isSecure", true);
user_pref("mail.server.server4.login_at_startup", true);
user_pref("", "");
user_pref("mail.server.server4.numHdrsToKeep", 30);
user_pref("mail.server.server4.port", 995);
user_pref("mail.server.server4.type", "pop3");
user_pref("mail.server.server4.useSecAuth", true);
user_pref("mail.server.server4.userName", "");

Any hints?
