I am for a block of 1 or more emails.

my doubts: 1) the retrieving of mails should start soon after the open or after a comand ( which command)? 2) now i bufferize all mail on servers (no /direct mode), can it be a big problem?

I use a mode "TOP" or "RETR" open: pop-async://blablabla/top/5 it can be changed after open with: insert port "top 5" insert port "retr"

or pop-async:// ?? --- Ciao Romano
