This is a long shot, but you might try disabling Vista's autotuning feature.
1. Click on the Vista start orb and type cmd
2. The search results will display a program named cmd.exe
3. Right-click on the link and select "Run as administrator"
4. After the command prompt window opens, type
"netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled" without
the quotation marks, then press Enter.
5. Test your POP account and see if you can download your mail now.
6. If nothing changes, re-enable the autotuning feature by typing
"netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=normal"
Hope this helps.
