If I use fetchmail, it works fine. The problem is when I use I
am working a problem with Apple because doesn't want to use my
pop/ ticket. I noticed the ticket error it gives me when I 
ran /System/Library/CoreServices/ and thought that maybe that
is why refuses to use my service ticket and insists on me
getting new credentials. 

If there is any debugging I can help you with, just let me know.

I did a kdestroy before my latest test.
