Hi everybody!

I have a problem with pop3 checking. Some mailboxes are not working with
pop3 after some time.
When I delete one broken mailbox and then recreate it, I may login only one
time by using pop3. Then it is broken again.

Here is what I get when using telnet:

myhost:~ # telnet localhost 110
Trying ::1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK myhost Cyrus POP3 v2.0.16 server ready
user asdasdasd
+OK Name is a valid mailbox
pass xyz
Connection closed by foreign host.

Most mailboxes work correctly with pop3, only some don't. But all are
accessible through IMAP protocol!
Any ideas?
