Click on get messages. It starts to get messages then stops. I click again and
receive the message "This folder is being processed. Please wait until
processing is complete to get messages.". I then am unable to get messages and
no messages are downloaded. I close Mozilla and go back in and go through the
same process again. It does show how many email that I have on the pop server
and I can go to the server via webmail and read my emails. I was using 4.1 then
updated to 1.5 and still have the same problem. Also I have been using Mozilla
for over 12 months and this is the first mail problem with it. Also I am using
the same email provider so nothing is new or different. This started
yesterday...I also deleted inbox and the problem remianed with the new inbox. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.get messages
2.then it shows it is getting the first message and then stops
3.the will not allow you to get as it is "processing"

Actual Results:  
I could only access the mail via webmail not through mozilla and pop server

Expected Results:  
obtained messages like it has done previously

After closing Mozilla and restart, where you able to get some messages before it
stopped again, or didn't it get any message?

You still have messages on your server, yes? When you write "I also deleted
inbox", you mean your local inbox, yes?
Looks it to you like there's a message on the server that blocks downloading?
