OK. Let me explain. I have AOL, Comcast, hotmail and windows live mail
emails that I check periodically (manually). So after the WLM has FINISHED
checking all of these when I do "receive all", then I see the little blue
ball at the bottom right hand corner saying "connecting". So I click on it,
and lo and behold the popup window shows that it is starting over again, but
this time (always) with the Comcast first, then the hotmail and live mail.
So I figure it must be a bug in the program, since I haven't given it a
command to do that. I can't honestly say that it happens every single time
(I used to have it set for 30 minutes, or whatever, then I unchecked the
"check messages every ... minutes " box) that I manually "receive all", but
it happens often enough to get my attention. It's been happening for quite
some time but just tonight I felt like I wanted to spend time typing all of
this stuff in to share with y'all.
