There is not realy an underlying problem. The only problem is the
messages every 5 minutes that there was no email or 5 emails have been
dowloaded or something like that.

benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who
healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from
destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and
tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good
things; so that thy youth is renewed like the
eagle's." Psalms 103:2-5
