With only the info you've posted, all I can think of is a corrupt 
message sitting on the mail server.  This can block receipt of messages 
(or in some cases make you receive the same message(s) over and over 
again), and I've always just logged into the POP server from the command 
line to delete the first message in the queue.  That usually fixes it.
