I have several POP3 accounts configured in mail.  Whenever I get a new message
for a secondary account, a popup will appear "1 new message for ddd@yyy.com" but
there is nothing in the inbox.  I must select the inbox of the account in
question and then click "get mail" and then the message will download.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure a primary and secondary email account, set to auto check every x min
2.Send a message to your secondary email account, watch the popup appear -
nothing in inbox
3. Select the inbox of your secondary account, manually click "get messages" and
the messages will download
Actual Results:  
Successful download of message.

Expected Results:  
The message should download the first time!

Correction - I have 3 POP3 accounts configured and only 1 of the 2 secondary
accounts exhibits this behavior.  All accounts were created with the wizard.

highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
