I hope you don't mind me shooting in the dark here...
Remember this thread:
Do you think it could be relevant?
What does the output of "netstat -anp" look like when this is happening? How about
"lsof -ni TCP:pop3"?
We had a problem with our main mail server a few days ago with SMTP. Clients would
connect but never get a banner. Turns out that we had a lot of TCP connections
stuck in SYN_RECV, which was again caused by the network device mentioned in the
above thread. Do you see anything like that in your netstat output?
