ok , i tested a little
the popstate.dat files stores what to do
with pop3 mail identified by UIDL

this tb function looks good on both servers

if i.e a mail was deleted from local inbox
it gets declared something like
d uidl
in the popstate.dat

the difference between the servers is
that in the server without virtual plugin the mail gets in deed deleted
at pop3 reconnect

pop3(... at ....): expunge: box=INBOX, uid=172,
msgid=<4D813935.9070606 at ....>, size=1836

with my virtual plugin setup it isnt deleted
cant see any expunge with this tb account

miracle i can see onther account ( think he has old netscape )
which sends expunge over pop3

Best Regards
