I'm using TIdPOP3 to check for email messages every two minutes. If
my app find a message, then it processes it. Every couple of days,
the Connect method doesn't return. No exception is raised. My app
just hangs and sits there. I'm writing a message to a log file before
and after the call to Connect--that's how I know it is where the hang
is occuring. I have a TIdAntiFreeze component in my app. I create the
IIdPOP3 object just before the call to Connect. Any suggestions what
the problem might be? I'm using Indy 9.0.14, Delphi 7.1, Windows Xp
