I recently wrote a complaint to my ISP because I as getting poor downloads for 
my POP3 mail (some times downloads would pause for up to minutes).
In their response they noted that:

Is there any truth to this? I certainly don't think I've noticed this problem 
I'm using Kmail 1.4.2 under KDE3.0.2 (compiled from sources) under linux
