First -- let me say that I love YahooPOPs and it's made
my life a lot easier. For me, it's actually more useful
than Yahoo's own POP3 service because it lets me
download messages easily from -any- folder, not just
the Inbox. I'd think that by now Yahoo would offer
IMAP, but I don't think they do. So thanks to those
who've worked hard on this project.

Using YP .4.6 and .5, I recently encountered a very long
pause when downloading a message with a large (1.5
meg) attachment. My original bug report was going to
say that YP had frozen, but after a long time (including
a pause without any send/receive activity on my DSL
connection), the message finally did download this
time. It's quite possible that this is Yahoo's fault, or
the internet's fault, but I mention it in case someone
else happens to have this come up.

Also, this is a good excuse to let you all know that I
really appreciate your work on YP.

So, thanks again,
Dan

    I'll look at enhancing the progress bar, if possible, to keep
    showing the download status. This will at least ensure that it
    does not give the false appearance of a "hang".
