When you connect to our POP3 server (mailin.michcom.net) to pick
up your E-Mail, our server will automatically generate a lock
file to keep other connections from modifying your mailbox
while it's in use. If you unexpectedly disconnect from the
mail server, your lock file may be left behind until the server
realizes that you're no longer connected.
If you're running ICQ or any other software that monitors
your mailbox for new messages, it may periodically activate
a POP lock while it checks your mailbox. You will see a POP
lock error if another program is checking your mail while you're
trying to download it.
If you don't look at the details of the error, Outlook Express
makes a POP Lock error message look like a password error. Eudora
and some other mail clients will actually notify you that there
is a POP lock active.
The mail server should automatically remove POP locks within
