Due to a bug in MailWarrior.

I can't use any other e-mail program, MailWarrior has
the functions I need, the memory leak is the price I
have to pay for it. I'd like to get more than 30
emails before it gives me "Unable to create thread"
error in MailWarrior. I am guessing it is due to a
change in YahooPOPs or the Yahoo server, something is
causing the threads to accumulate in MailWarrior.
Regular POP3 and Hotmail Popper sessions have no
problems.

I can't do anything about Kaufman MailWarrior since
the author has simply vanished. The problem possibly
lies within YahooPOPs, it's letting MailWarrior slip
threads, probably the sessions of YahooPOPs have to be
guarded and queued so that requests are sent in line.
There should be a Local User Access Only mode, which
allows only one connection through YahooPOPs - this
prevents a YahooPOPs user's computer getting scanned
and targeted to be used as a spamming engine.

Note: log file reflects several email addresses- I do
this to keep mail sorted into categories. Messages in
shipyard_bilge_rat email address contain adult-
oriented messages and adult-oriented spam traffic from
Yahoo Groups - I spread messages from Yahoo groups
over several accounts, each with their own categories.
Log file is taken from start of retrieval session
until Kaufman Mail Warrior collapse.

    I would recommend that you switch to some other email
    client. We have not seen this issue being reported for other
    email clients.

    It would be difficult for us to provide a workaround in
    YPOPs! to address a probable bug in Kaufman Mail Warrior.
